Training Area: Housing
Instructor: Eugene Goldfarb

Time: 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm EST
Tribes must use an environmental assessment (EA) process (HUD’s procedures, as set forth in the 24
CFR 58) for all federally funded projects. Generally the EA process ensures that certain minimum standards be met. The EA process, however, can be used to get Tribal decision makers to consider more sustainable alternatives. Examples will include water (groundwater recharge vs. runoff), energy, and brownfield redevelopment projects.
