TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:On or about the 19th day of September, 2018 the Town of Monterey will submit a request to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development (DHCD) for the release of CDBG funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act 1974 (PL 93-383) as amended to undertake a project known as the Monterey Regional Housing Rehabilitation Program for the purpose of completing moderate rehabilitation of homes in the towns of Monterey, Sandisfield and Egremont totaling up to $1,025,550.
The activity proposed is categorically excluded under HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 from the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) requirements.

RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Town of Monterey certifies to DHCD that Carol Edelman, in her official capacity as Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, 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. HUD’s and Massachusetts DHCD’s approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Town of Monterey to use Program funds.
