If a project has received environmental review clearance and an approved Request for Release of Funds (RROF) in a location, would the use of NSP funds for replicated project activities at the same location be considered 'supplemental assistance' per 24 CFR 58.35(b)(7), and not require another environmental review and RROF?

To be considered supplemental funds, the additional projects/activities must not change the scope, magnitude, location, or environmental circumstances of the original, HUD-approved proposal. If these factors do not change, the addition of other funds by the same responsible entity will not require additional environmental review, certification or clearance. However, the responsible entity is required to provide a determination that the project description (including the scope, magnitude, location or environmental circumstances) has not changed. The Part 50 and Part 58 regulations are found under Laws and Regulations posted on HUD's Environment website.
