Today, in the Federal Register, The Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) has announced a proposed rulemaking updating the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Currently, PHAs must follow HUD regulations that are bound by NEPA regulations. As such, these changes to NEPA regulations will require HUD to update their environmental review regulations once a final NEPA rule goes into effect.
Comments on the CEQ’s proposed rule update NEPA are due March 10. Comments should be submitted to regulations.gov.
A press release on the update can be found here.
