Balance of State CoC Environmental Review Requirements

In accordance with 24 CFR Part 58, all HUD-funded, federally-assisted projects, as well as all State of Georgia ESG assisted projects, are subject to the requirements for environmental review and documentation. Organizations receiving such funds (CoC, ESG, and HOPWA) may not commit or expend these funds until an environmental review that meets the standards outlined in 24 CFR Part 58 has been approved by the certifying officer at DCA. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the termination of any and all contracts and may require repayment of related expended funds.

This information must be submitted to DCA for approval as detailed in the Environmental Review Procedure below for all Balance of State CoC projects (please see all attachments for full information):
