Antietam National Battlefield, MD3.7 Categorical Exclusions — Public Involvement

No specific public involvement steps are required when you are categorically excluding an action from further NEPA analysis and documentation. However, CEQ requires agencies to always make a “diligent” effort to involve any interested and affected public that exist (1506.6). You should include an internal scoping step to brainstorm whether any interested or affected public exist, and discuss the best method to involve them if they do.
