HUD NSP Policy Alert: Environmental Review, Options and Conditional Contracts

Date Published: September 2011



This HUD NSP Policy Alert is intended for grantees and their partners seeking guidance related to environmental review. This guidance document provides information on several issues surrounding environmental review requirements under NSP. Specifically, it deals with:

  • When a project becomes "federal" for purposes of environmental review;
  • When and how to use option agreements;
  • When and how to use conditional contracts; and
  • When to consider a tiered environmental review.

This policy alert builds on a Sept. 1, 2011 policy alert on using conditional and option contracts.
