APRIL 25, 2013
CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF CANTON
1150 CANTON CENTER S., CANTON, MI 48188 (734) 394-5225
On or about May 17, 2013 the Charter Township of Canton will submit a request to the US Department of Housing and
Urban Development for the release of Community Development Block Grant funds under Title I of the Housing and Community
Development Act of 1974
as amended, to undertake the following projects
PROJECT 1: Housing Rehabilitation, $100,000.00 for
the purpose of repairing residential homes. PROJECT 2: ADA Improvements to Township Facilities, $ 185,000 for the purpose of
bringing township facilities into ADA compliance. Canton Township will perform a second tier environmental review on each specific
property that is selected for the residential home repairs and this information will be kept in a file for documentation purposes.
The activities proposed are categorically excluded under HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 from National Environmental
Policy Act requirements— An Environmental Review Record (ERR) that documents the environmental determinations for this project
is on file at the Finance Department
1150 Canton Center S, Canton MI 48188 where ERR can be examined. This document may be
examined or copied weekdays between 9 A.M. and 4 P.M.
Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Finance Dept, 1150 Canton Center S.,
Canton MI 48188. All comments received by May 17, 2013 will be considered by Canton Township prior to authorizing submission of
a request for release of funds.
RELEASE OF FUNDS
The Charter Township of Canton certifies to HUD that Philip J. LaJoy in his capacity as Township Supervisor 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 approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA
and related laws and authorities, and allows Canton Township to use Program funds.
OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS
HUD will consider objections to its release of funds and the Charter Township of Canton certification received by May 17,
2013 or for a period of fifteen days following its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the follow-
ing bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the Charter Township of Canton; (b) the Charter Township
of Canton has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recip-
ient or other participants in the project have committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a
release of funds by HUD
or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the
project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with
the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to HUD at McNamara Federal Building, 477 Michigan Avenue, Detroit
MI 48226. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
