Environmental Review Fact Sheets for Office of Housing Projects

Last updated: December 2022

This page contains information on important Office of Housing topics as they relate to the environmental review process.

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 and insured Office of Housing 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 residents.

Additional information and resources that can be found on the Environmental Review Resources for Office of Housing Projects page.
