Section 1609 (NEPA) Reporting Overview
Section 1609 (NEPA) requires that recipients of Recovery Act funds report on the status of environmental compliance review actions.
- Each grantee receiving HUD Recovery Act funds subject to the environmental reviews requirements found in 24 CFR Part 58 should complete the NEPA Reporting portion of the Recovery Act Management and Performance (RAMPS) data system. RAMPS enables grant recipients to submit required information quickly and easily by completing a series of online forms.
- For HUD Recovery Act programs that are subject to environmental reviews found in 24 CFR Part 50, HUD staff will complete the NEPA reporting requirements.
- Recipients of funds through the Project-Based Rental Assistance program and the Homelessness Prevention and Rapid Re-housing Program are not required to report in RAMPS.
Entry of the information should occur as soon as possible after completion of an environmental review action and should be updated as soon as the review action status changes. Separate RAMPS submissions are required for each single environmental review funded in any part by HUD Recovery Act funds. If the project is receiving multiple Recovery Act funding from different federal agencies, enter only the HUD Recovery Act program portion of the funding into the environmental portion of the HUD RAMPS system. If the same project is receiving funding from more than one HUD Recovery Act program, enter the environmental review information for each HUD Recovery Act grant supporting the project. If you do not currently have access to RAMPS using your HUD system ID (M#, B#, C#, etc.), HUD Staff members should request access through the CHAMP system, which can be access via hud@work. please click here to request access

. You will need to provide your HUD ID
