This 3-day training provides Indian tribes (“tribes” also includes Native Alaskan villages) and other recipients of HUD’s Office of Native American Program funding — Tribally Designated Housing Entities (TDHEs) — with specific instructions and guidelines for carrying out their responsibilities under the environmental review process according to 24 CFR Part 58: Environmental Review Procedures for Entities Assuming HUD Environmental Responsibilities.
The environmental review process is required for all HUD ONAP assisted projects to ensure that the proposed project does not negatively impact the surrounding environment and that the property site itself will not have an adverse environmental or health effect on end users. Not every project is subject to a full environmental review (i.e., every project’s environmental impact must be examined, but the extent of this examination varies), but every project must be in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and other related environmental laws.
