Welcome to the HUD Exchange environmental review website. The Office of Environment and Energy (OEE) manages the environmental review process for HUD.
An environmental review is the process of reviewing a project and its potential environmental impacts to determine whether it meets federal, state, and local environmental standards. The environmental review process is required for all HUD-assisted projects to ensure that the proposed project does not negatively impact the surrounding environment and that the property site itself will not have an adverse environmental or health effect on end users. Not every project is subject to a full environmental review (i.e., every project's environmental impact must be examined, but the extent of this examination varies), but every project must be in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and other related Federal and state environmental laws.
These resources provide OEE updates, Section 106 information, and guidance on submitting OEE forms during the COVID-19 pandemic.
