811 PRA FAQ
Q

We have eight properties that have either HOME or Section 8 financing attached to them. Based on our understanding of PRA 215, we are assuming that no further environmental review will be necessary for these properties. Is this correct?

A

Yes. Properties with HOME and/or project-based Section 8 are considered HUD-assisted. Existing properties that are currently HUD-assisted or HUD-insured and that will not engage in activities with physical impacts or changes beyond routine maintenance activities or minimal repairs are not required to comply with the environmental tenets. However, if the properties in question will involve rehabilitation or new construction, an environmental review may be required.
