All federally funded projects must undergo a review process to measure the potential environmental impact of the project and to ensure that it meets federal, state, and local environmental standards. The environmental review process ensures that the project will not negatively impact the surrounding environment or health of end users. This review must be completed by an Environmental Review Officer from HCDD. During the environmental review process, environmental mitigation conditions may be identified for the project to meet local, state and federal requirements. These mitigation measures are required to be implemented to comply with HUD Environmental Requirements and will be monitored to ensure appropriate implementation. No funds may be spent on any HUD-related project that may have an adverse environmental impact or will limit the choice of reasonable alternatives.
