RELEASE OF FUNDS

The State of Hawaii certifies to the HUD that the Honorable Neil Abercrombie, in his capacity as the Governor of the State of Hawaii, has consented 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 will be satisfied.  The HUD’s acceptance of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and allows the HPHA to use Program funds.

OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS

Mr. Jesse Wu, Director, Office of Public Housing, Honolulu Field Office at (808) 457-4668, will accept objections to its release of funds and the State of Hawaii’s certification for a period of 15 calendar days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if it is based upon one of the following:  (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the State of Hawaii; (b) the State of Hawaii has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by the HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by the 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 the HUD at 1132 Bishop Street, Suite 1400, Honolulu, Hawaii, 96813-4918.  Potential objectors should contact the HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
