FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
PHCD has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an
Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional
project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at PHCD, located at 701 NW 1st
Court, 14th Floor, Miami, FL 33136, and may be examined or copied weekdays 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.
PUBLIC COMMENTS
Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit
written comments to Public Housing and Community Development, ATTN: Clarence Brown, Division Director,
Community Development Division. All comments received by March 19, 2021, will be considered by PHCD prior to
authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which public notice is being addressed.
RELEASE OF FUNDS
PHCD certifies to U.S. HUD that Daniella Levine Cava, in her capacity as Mayor, consents to accept the jurisdiction of the
Federal Courts, if an action is brought, to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that
these responsibilities have been satisfied. U.S. HUD's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA
and related laws and authorities, and allows Miami-Dade County to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
U.S. HUD will consider objections to its release of funds and the Miami-Dade County certification for a period of fifteen
days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are
on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer or other officer of PHCD
approved by U.S. HUD; (b) PHCD has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by U.S. HUD
regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or other participants in the project have
committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by U.S. HUD;
or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is
unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in
accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development, Miami Field Office, Brickell Plaza Federal Building, 909 SE First
Avenue, Room 500, Miami, Florida 33131-3028, ATTN: Victor Atkins, Director, Office of Public and
Indian Housing. Potential objectors should contact U.S. HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
