The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) proposes to establish a new Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) System of Records Notice (SORN) for the Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration Evaluation Data Files (VHPD Data Files) system. The VHPD Data Files system will involve collaborative efforts needed to evaluate certain HUD homelessness prevention programs. The demonstration evaluation will involve data analysis from particular jurisdictions to assist HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) and its researchers with examining cross-agency coordination, expanding data collection and analysis, conducting comprehensive program evaluations, and enhancing homelessness prevention efforts. HUD's Office of Policy Development and Research is focusing on data collection efforts, analysis, research, and program evaluation to promote better practice and outcomes in certain homelessness prevention programs to assist with resolving complex matters affecting homelessness among veterans.

This provides notice to the public, agencies, and Indian tribes that the City and County of San Francisco's Mayor's Office of Housing (MOH), as the Responsible Entity in accordance with 24 CFR 58.2(a)(7), intends to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Report/ Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) for the HOPE SF Development at the Potrero Terrace and Potrero Annex Public Housing Development (Potrero HOPE SF Master Plan Project). The EIR/EIS will be a joint National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) document. The EIR will satisfy requirements of CEQA (Public Resources Code 21000 et seq.) and the State CEQA Guidelines (14 California Code of Regulations 15000 et seq.), which require that state and local government agencies consider the environmental consequences of projects over which they have discretionary authority before acting on those projects. The proposed action is subject to NEPA, because funding for the project may include HUD funds from programs subject to regulation by 24 CFR part 58; these include, but are not limited to, Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974; Home Investment Partnership Program (HOME) grants under Title II of the Cranston- Gonzales National Affordable Housing Act of 1990 as amended; Project Based Section 8 Vouchers under the United States Housing Act of 1937; and/or Section 8(o)(13) and Public Housing operating subsidies for mixed income developments authorized under the U.S. Housing Act of 1937, Section 35. This notice is in accordance with the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) regulations at 40 CFR parts 1500-1508. A Draft EIR/EIS will be prepared for the proposed action described herein. Comments relating to the Draft EIR/EIS are requested and will be accepted by the contact person listed below. When the Draft EIR/EIS is completed, a notice will be sent to individuals and groups known to have an interest in the Draft EIR/EIS and particularly in the environmental impact issues identified therein. Any person or agency interested in receiving a notice and making comment on the Draft EIR/ EIS should contact the person listed below within 30-days after publication of this notice. This EIS will be a NEPA document intended to satisfy requirements of federal environmental statutes. In accordance with specific statutory authority and HUD's regulations at 24 CFR part 58 (Environmental Review Procedures for Entities Assuming HUD Environmental Responsibilities), HUD has provided for assumption of its NEPA authority and NEPA lead agency responsibility by the City and County of San Francisco. The EIR will be a CEQA document intended to satisfy State environmental statutes (Public Resources Code 21000 et seq. and 14 California Code of Regulations 15000 et seq.).
