Per 24 CFR Part 50, HUD performs environmental reviews. Recipients of HUD funds will assist HUD with the preparation of the environmental review by supplying key documents and analysis; however, HUD is legally responsible for the content of the environmental review. Part 50 applies where program legislation does not permit the use of Part 58, if the Responsible Entity (RE) does not have capacity to conduct an environmental review, or if 24 CFR 58.11(d) applies. Per 24 CFR 58.11(d), a local government that is not the direct recipient of HUD funds may refuse to act as Responsible Entity. In the CoC Program, Part 50 only applies in cases where a unit of government is not the direct recipient of grant funds.
