Q

Is there a citation or clarifying language regarding the definition of "operations" with regards to environmental review requirements? It seems that the level of environmental review depends on the type of expense.

A

24 CFR 58.35(b)(3) designates “operating costs including maintenance, security, operation, utilities, furnishings, equipment, supplies, staff training and recruitment and other incidental costs” as CENST. The HUD Memorandum: Guidance for Categorizing an Activity as Maintenance for Compliance with HUD's Environmental Regulations, 24 CFR Parts 50 and 58 will clarify the meaning of “maintenance.” All other listed activities should be interpreted to apply to business expenses without physical or environmental impacts.
