Under the Native American Housing Assistance and Self-Determination Act of 1996 (NAHASDA) (25 U.S.C. 4101 et seq.), HUD provides grants, loan guarantees, and technical assistance to Indian tribes and tribally designated housing entities (TDHE) for the development and operation of low-income housing in Indian areas. Grants are made to eligible recipients under the Indian Housing Block Grant (IHBG) program. Grantees receiving funds under this program are responsible for meeting the requirements of NAHASDA and its implementing regulations, including compliance with HUD’s environmental regulations 24 CFR Part 50 and Part 58.
Learn the ins and outs of environmental review. This 3-day training will offer IHBG Grantees the skills to successfully carry out an environmental review. Training will include detailed instructions on meeting the legislative and regulatory requirements of environmental review, assistance in devising standard procedures for conducting and documenting an environmental review, specific instruction for carrying out environmental review responsibilities, levels of environmental review, and key steps in the environmental review process. As we answer questions common to the environmental review process, tribes and TDHEs will be encouraged to share advice and best practices, to help you avoid common pitfalls.
Registration begins at 8 AM on Day 1. Training begins at 8:30 AM and ends at 4:30 PM each day.
A special segment providing an overview of the Lead-Based Paint requirements (24 CFR Part 35) that apply to IHBG funded activities will be presented on the afternoon of Day 3.
