Question

What is an Environmental Review and why is it required for a CDBG funded activity?

Answer

Generally speaking, any undertaking that receives federal funding is subject to an environmental review.  The City, as the Grantee of the CDBG Program, has the sole responsibility to conduct required environmental reviews for activities that receive CDBG funds through the City's CDBG Program.  Simply, an environmental review is required in order to ensure that the activity will not cause negative impact on the environment.
