February 8, 2024
Town of Warrensburg
3797 Main Street
Warrensburg, NY 12885
On or about February 16, 2024 the Town of Warrensburg will submit a request to the Office of Community Renewal for the release of CDBG funds under Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended, to undertake a project known as Town of Warrensburg Housing Rehabilitation Program for the purpose of moderate rehabilitation of single family owner-occupied homes using $500,000 in CDBG funds within the Town of Warrensburg.
The activities proposed ARE CATEGORICALLY EXCLUDED UNDER HUD REGULATIONS AT 24 CFR PART 58 FROM NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY ACT REQUIREMENTS. An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this project is on file at the Town of Warrensburg; 3797 Main Street; Warrensburg NY 12885 and may be examined or copied weekdays 9A.M. to 3P.M.
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Town of Warrensburg. All comments received by February 14, 2024 will be considered by the Town of Warrensburg prior to submission of a request for release of funds.
RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Town of Warrensburg certifies to the Office of Community Renewal that Kevin Geraghty in his/her capacity as Supervisor 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. The Office of Community Renewal’s acceptance of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and allows the Town of Warrensburg to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Office of Community Renewal will accept objections to its release of fund and the Town of Warrensburg 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 of the Town of Warrensburg; (b) the Town of Warrensburg has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c) the grant recipient or other participants in the development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the Office of Community Renewal; 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, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Crystal Loffler, Acting President, at Office of Community Renewal, Hampton Plaza, 38-40 State Street, 4th Floor, Albany, NY 12207. Potential objectors should contact the Office of Community Renewal to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
