24 CFR Part 58 applies to states, Indian tribes, and units of local government that assume the Federal environmental review role. Since most NSP grantees fall in this group, they are not subject to Part 50. 24 CFR Part 50 applies to projects where HUD retains responsibility for the environmental review because there is no governmental entity that can assume the federal review role. This may occur for some NSP2 grantees or for projects with other HUD funds. CFR Part 50 and 24 CFR Part 58 have only slightly different environmental review requirements but very different due diligence requirements. Both regulations are found under Laws and Regulations posted on HUD's Environment website.
