About the Clearinghouse

Authorized by gubernatorial executive order in 1989, the State Clearinghouse, within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of State Lands, exists to inform Executive Branch agencies of significant federal projects and policy initiatives that affect our state.


The Nevada State Clearinghouse is the single point of contact (SPOC) for National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) proposals statewide. Pursuant to NEPA, federal agencies must consult with the State and other agencies whenever a project or policy initiative is proposed on public lands. The Clearinghouse ensures that pertinent State agencies and other local governments are notified about the projects and then provides their comments back to the federal agencies to help facilitate the consultation process.


The Nevada Joint Military Affairs Committee (NJMAC) is held twice a year and is facilitated by the Nevada State Clearinghouse. NJMAC is composed of personnel from the military, federal land managers, state agencies, Congressional staff and one representative from the Nevada Association of Counties. The intent of NJMAC is to meet and discuss topics of mutual interest, increase dialogue and be proactive regarding emerging issues of importance to Nevada.
