The HUD Kentucky Community Planning Development Field Office (CPD) staff and Ms. Sandra Frye, the Region IV Regional Environmental Supervisor, hosted the second annual Environmental Training class for grantees and participating jurisdictions in Louisville, Kentucky on August 7-8, 2014. The training strengthens the capacity building effort while adding assurance that the environmental grant process is properly facilitated by HUD and is fully implemented by HUD's grantee partners. Ms. Frye presented a wide range of support topics to a full class of 35 participants that included non-profit grantees and HUD Kentucky Field Office staff, CPD entitlement and Continuum of Care grantees, as well as, HUD staff from CPD, Multifamily and Public Housing.

"This training regarding the environmental review process can be very simple or it can be very complicated depending on your project. It is also an extremely important planning tool for you to use to ensure your project is incompliance and compatible with the environment", said Frye.

The topics covered were multiple; however, to summarize they would include guidance on how grantees can comply with all the federal environmental laws and authorities that apply to HUD projects including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Endangered Species Act, Floodplain Management and Wetlands Protection, etc. We also had Kary Stackelbeck from the Kentucky Heritage Council do a presentation on how to comply with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (see attached Agenda).
