HUD’s Eastern Woodlands Office of Native American Programs in collaboration with the Seminole Tribe of Florida Native Learning Center invites you to attend the Environmental Review Training instructed by Eugene Goldfarb, University of Illinois – Chicago/Great Lakes Environmental Planning, Inc. in Green Bay, Wisconsin on November 4 – 6, 2014.
Environmental review allows Tribal government and other stakeholders to identify and evaluate alternative sites and designs that can mitigate adverse impacts and/or lower long-term maintenance costs. All federal projects require environmental assessment responsibilities under National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA), and many Tribal governments routinely include environmental considerations in their local decision making process.
This course uses the HUD (24 CFR 58) environmental process that delegates NEPA & other environmental authorities to the Tribes as a framework for providing insights into issue identification and analysis pointed to consideration of alternatives. The textbook with companion DVD will use interactive exercises and simulation. Case oriented exercises will provide participants with a simulated hands-on experience as well as provide opportunities for Q & A and peer-to-peer education.
