COMBINED NOTICE OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF

FUNDS

October 3, 2012 TDHCA 221 East 11th Street Austin, Texas 78701 512-475-0430

This Notice shall satisfy the above-cited two separate but related procedural notification requirements.

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS

On or about the 19th day of October the TDHCA will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of HOME Investment Partnerships Program funds under Title II of the Cranston Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, as amended, to undertake a project known as Heartland Village Apartments, for the purpose of the new construction of an 80 unit affordable multifamily community with 5 residential 2-story buildings and one non-residential building located on 8 acres just south of the intersection of Hwy 11 and County Road 1103, Sulphur Springs, Hopkins County, TX 75482. Approximately $1,510,000 in HOME funds under contract 1001668 will be utilized for this project. The total estimated cost of this project is $10,281,954.

FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT

IMPACT

The TDHCA 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 221 East 11th Street, Austin, Texas 78711 or Heartland Village, Ltd., 1101 S. Capital of Texas Hwy., Bldg F, Suite 200, Austin, TX 78746 and may be examined or copied weekdays 9:30 A.M. to 4:30 P.M.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments to the TDHCA. All comments received by October 18, 2012 will be considered by the TDHCA prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Commentors should specify which part of this Notice they are addressing.

RELEASE OF FUNDS

The TDHCA certifies to HUD that Brenda Hull in her capacity as Director of Program Services 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 Heartland Village, Ltd. to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

HUD will consider objections to its release of funds and the TDHCA certification received by November 5, 2012 or a period of fifteen days from its receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer or other officer of the TDHCA approved by HUD; (b) the (RE) has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient 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 Fort Worth Regional Office at 801 Cherry Street, Unit #45 - Suite 2500, Fort Worth, Texas 76102.
