The City of Todd Mission has been awarded $167,101 in grant funds and shall contribute $0 in match funds.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The City of Todd Mission has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file on the City website and may be examined or copied anytime until the close of business on 4/5/2021.
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Office of the Mayor. All comments received by 4/5/2021 will be considered by the City of Todd Mission prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing.
The City of Todd Mission certifies to GLO that George Coulam in their capacity as Mayor 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. GLO approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the City of Todd Mission to use HUD program funds.
