CDBG Environmental

Introduction

All projects and related activities funded through CDBG, ESG and HOPWA are subject to the provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended (NEPA). The primary purpose of the laws and authorities governing the environmental process is to establish national policy, goals and procedures to protect, restore and enhance environmental quality. Programs funded or assisted by the state with federal money (HUD) must consider impacts on the environment and be consistent with Federal programs and policies.

An Environmental Review Record (ERR) is required to be established for each project. An ERR is a concise public record containing original documentation related to the environmental review, decision-making, and activities undertaken in a project. The ERR must be available to the public upon request at the Responsible Entity’s location; county courthouse or city offices. It is a legal document and the best and often only defense to prove compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

 

Instructions
