These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the Colusa Indian Community Council
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS
On or about 12/29/20 the Colusa Indian Community Council will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for the release of Community Development Block Grant Program for Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Villages funds under Section 106 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 to undertake a project known as Youth-Transitional-Housing for the purpose of the building of six youth transitional rental units for low-income tribal members who are between the ages of 18 and 24 years old. The six housing units will be on 1.56 acres of Tribal land on the New Reservation of the Tribe. The property is located on the south end of Traditional Ways in Colusa, California.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The Colusa Indian Community Council has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on HUD’s website at https://www.hudexchange.info/programs/environmental-review/environmental-review-records/. For further information or to obtain a copy of the ERR, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the attention of Kathleen Eredia at Colusa Indian Community Council, 3730 State Hwy 45, Colusa, CA 95932 or email at email@example.com. All comments received by 12/27/20 will be considered by the Colusa Indian Community Council prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.
The Colusa Indian Community Council certifies to HUD that Daniel Gomez in his capacity as Chairman 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 Colusa Indian Community Council to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
HUD/State will accept objections to its release of fund and the Colusa Indian Community Council’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or 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 the Colusa Indian Community Council; (b) the Colusa Indian Community Council 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 development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities 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, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development at One Sansome Street, Suite 1200, San Francisco, CA 94104. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
