NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS (NOIRROF)

April 18, 2019

New York State Homes & Community Renewal (HCR)

38-40 State Street 

Albany, New York 12207

(518) 486-3379

On or after April 26, 2019, New York State Homes & Community Renewal (HCR) will submit a request to the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of $400,000 of HOME funds under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act (NAHA) of 1990, in accordance with section 288 (42 U.S.C. 12838), to authorize Albany County Rural Housing Alliance, Inc. to undertake a program known as ACRHA Homebuyer Program, for purposes of providing funds for the cost of purchase assistance and post-purchase repairs for 7 first time homebuyers at scattered sites in Albany County, excluding the City of Albany with an estimated total project cost of $1,494,500. Additional funding sources will provide funding for the remaining project cost not covered by HOME funds.

The 2018 HOME LPA Program will use HOME funds from 2018 awards to fund a variety of activities through partnerships with counties, municipalities and non-profit community-based housing organizations, which are referred to as Local Program Administrators (LPA). Each LPA works within a specific geographic area ñ usually a county or municipality. The Program provides funds to acquire, rehabilitate or construct housing or to provide assistance to low- and moderate-income home-buyers and renters.  Funds must be distributed in accordance with needs and priorities identified in the Stateís Consolidated Plan.

The proposed activities that are the subject of this Notice are Categorically Excluded from National Environmental Policy Act requirements under HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58.35(a)(3)(i). The specific LPA Programs that are the subject of this Notice do not constitute every LPA Program that is proposed for inclusion within the 2018 New York State HOME LPA Program. A full listing of the 2018 HOME LPA Programs is available at http://www.nyshcr.org/Funding/Awards/.

This is the first tier of review in a 2-tiered process. The specific addresses of homes are not known at this time because the participating property owner identification process is ongoing. Therefore, under 24 CFR Part 58.15 (Tiering) and 24 CFR Part 58.32 (Project Aggregation), HCR will use a tiered approach and Tier 2 site specific reviews will be completed for those laws and authorities not addressed in the Tier 1 broad review for each address under this program when addresses become known. No physical work will begin on properties until all levels of environmental review are complete and found to be in compliance. Tier 1 review addresses specific environmental factors for which compliance has been documented, regardless of specific site locations. It prevents repeating the same compliance factors on a Tier 2 site-specific basis, once all participating homeowners are known.

An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this Program is on file at the following location: 

Albany County Rural Housing Alliance, Inc.

24 Martin Road

Voorheesville, NY 12186

and may be examined or copied weekdays 8:30A.M. to 4:00P.M.

The ERR can also be obtained by emailing .

Tier 2 Site Specific Review: The site specific reviews will cover all the laws and authorities not resolved in the broad Tier 1 review as discussed in the ERR that is available for public inspection. 

Mitigation Measures/Conditions/Permits (if any): Template Tier 2 forms are included in the ERR that is available for public inspection. The Templates include the mitigation measures, conditions and/or permits that will be complied with, if applicable, at each project site that is chosen.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to Heather Spitzberg, Esq., Environmental Analysis Unit, NYS Homes & Community Renewal, 38-40 State Street, Albany, New York, 12207 or at . Please note to which LPA your comment pertains in your correspondence.  All comments received by April 25, 2019 will be considered by HCR prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

HCR certifies to HUD that Ms. Heather Spitzberg, Esq. in her capacity as Certifying Officer consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied.  HUD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the applicable LPA to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

HUD will consider objections to its release of funds and HCRís certification received by May 13, 2019 or for a period of fifteen days following its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of HCR; (b) HCR has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality.  Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to 

Director of Community Planning and Development

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

26 Federal Plaza

New York, New York 10278-0068  

Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
