Catholic Charities, Dioceses of St Petersburg, Inc., contacted Hernando County Health and Human Services and requested the County sign and assume responsibility for the environmental review of their Hernando Pathways Rapid Rehousing project from the United States Department of Housing Development.


According to Part 58, local governments are encouraged to be responsible for the environmental review in cases where grants are made to other entities, such as nonprofit organizations and public housing authorities.


Catholic Charities' Hernando Pathways Rapid Rehousing project, which will provide rapid rehousing and support services to families in Hernando County, Florida, is an activity listed as categorically excluded from National Environmental Policy Act, NEPA, not subject to the related laws and authorities at 58.5 or 50.4.


Staff is presenting the attached form for the Board to determine if, they are willing to assume responsibility for the environmental review of the project and authorize the Chairman's signature on the same.
