New Tribal Consultation Requirements for Streamlined Housing Projects under SB 35


In 2018, the Legislature enacted SB 35 to provide a pathway for the ministerial approval of low- and moderate-income housing development projects without the need to be reviewed under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Because CEQA requires tribal consultation to identify Tribal Cultural Resources that may be affected by these projects, bypassing CEQA review meant that such resources might be impacted without consideration. 

As a result, in 2020, the Legislature enacted AB 168, which creates a new AB-52-like “scoping consultation” process before a project can be considered eligible for ministerial approval under SB 35. If consultation is not concluded in agreement with a consulting tribe, the project would not be eligible for ministerial approval and would be required to complete CEQA review instead.


Lisa Westwood, RPA is the Director of Cultural Resources for ECORP Consulting, Inc. and will present a summary of these requirements. Participants will learn the process that must be carried out, the timelines and thresholds for concluding consultation, and the affect that this may have on a project’s ability to utilize SB 35 approval.

$45 per person
