These notices shall satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the City of Boise’s Housing and Community Development (HCD) Division.

Request for Release of Funds

On or about April 1, 2020, the City’s HCD Division will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of funding under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzales National Affordable Housing Act, known as the HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME). The project known as 6th and Grove, will receive the funds for the purpose of site-preparation and new construction of a 50-units multi-family apartment complex located at 116 S. 6th Street, Boise, Idaho on approximately .27 acres of previously undeveloped land, which will provide housing for 0-80% of Area Median Income, along with some above 80% of Area Median Income units.

Finding of No Significant Impact

The City’s HCD Division 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 at the City’s HCD Division, 150 North Capitol Boulevard, Boise, ID 83702 and may be examined or copied weekdays 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

All comments received by March 27, 2020 will be considered by HCD prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which notice they are addressing.
