IV: Environment

In accordance with 24 CFR Part 58.22, before any federal funds can be committed, obligated, expended, or drawn down from the State, the grantee must complete an environmental review for their project and have received a Release of Funds (ROF) letter, indicating the environmental review requirements have been met.

Please note, in some instances there are two separate forms available below, one for local government grantees and one for non-local government grantees.  Forms are updated periodically, so please bookmark this page for future reference to ensure you have the most current forms available.
