Download as PDF lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 11384 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 39 / Thursday, February 27, 2020 / Notices sites if the AMP properties do not all logically group together based on proximity. Project aggregation and grouping of scattered sites are explained in PIH Notice 2016–22 as well as 24 CFR 58.32 and 24 CFR 50.21. The project cost threshold of $100,000 or less for the exemption is measured at the environmental project site level and includes the total cost of the project. An activity is an action the PHA puts forth as part of an assisted or to be assisted project. The most common activities involve section 9(d) Capital Fund and section 9(e) Operating Fund formula assistance. A small portion of the PHAs identified as eligible in this notice operate only a Section 8(o) voucher program, and a more limited segment of the eligible small and rural PHAs administer a PBV program. For a PHA that only operates a tenant-based HCV program, these activities are already categorically excluded and not subject to further environmental review, and section 38(d) offers no additional regulatory or administrative burden relief. PBV activities are the only section 8(o) activities that require an environmental review. The environmental review of PBV activities is a one-time review required before the PBV housing is approved to be placed under a Housing Assistance Payments Contract (HAP). After the one-time review for placement of PBV, there is no requirement for continued environmental reviews for ongoing activities at PBV properties. The section 38(d)(1) exempt PBV activities are infrequent and limited to PBV housing placement with a project cost of $100,000 or less prior to being placed under a HAP contract. Small rural PHAs eligible for the statutory exemption that also have less than 250 public housing units have full flexibility of use of Capital Funds and Operating Funds as explained in PIH Notice 2016–18. The environmental statutory exemption is not based on the funding source and applies to all eligible Capital Fund, Operating Fund and PBV activities with a total project cost of $100,000 or less. The statutory exemption from environmental review applies to any section 9(d) Capital Fund, section 9(e) Operating Fund or section 8(o)(13) PBV eligible work activity by a small rural PHA at a project site with a project cost of $100,000 or less. The environmental statutory exemption provided by section 38(d)(1) exempts this work activity from NEPA and related laws and authorities. The flood insurance requirements of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4001), and the funding prohibitions of the Coastal VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Feb 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 Barrier Resources Act, as amended (16 U.S.C. 3501), remain applicable. The exemption is available as of the effective date of this notice. Dated: February 13, 2020. R. Hunter Kurtz, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing.
