This document outlines how to perform environmental reviews for Rental Assistance Demonstration (RAD) transactions. This guidance is intended for RAD Awardees, Responsible Entities, and HUD staff involved in the environmental review process, and describes the steps that all parties will take to complete environmental reviews for RAD transactions. Environmental review procedures for RAD transactions will vary depending on whether the transaction is using Federal Housing Administration (FHA) insurance and whether the transaction is converting to Project-Based Rental Assistance (PBRA) or Project-Based Vouchers (PBV).
