Regulatory - Environmental Guidance

Pursuant to 24 CFR Part 58, environmental reviews must be conducted on every activity involving CDBG-DR and / or CDBG-MIT funds.

The GLO will use contracted Environmental Service Providers to assist in the Environmental Review Process for Hurricane Harvey related tasks. These reviews must be completed prior to beginning funded activity to satisfy all federal, state and local requirements. Additionally, local entities administering CDBG-DR / CDBG-MIT programs must follow the same requirements even if CDBG-DR / CDBG-MIT  funds only account for a small portion of the project. The GLO has developed a Regulatory Oversight department to manage the environmental review process and provide technical assistance to subrecipients within the program.
