24 CFR Part 58 is the Federal regulation that outlines the environmental review procedures for entities assuming HUD environmental responsibilities. Compliance under this regulation will fulfill the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), additional Federal regulations required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Development (HUD), and a few state/local environmental requirements. In regard to projects undertaken by Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA), the review done under 24 CFR Part 58 is often referred to as the NEPA review.

Historic Preservation Section 106 Review

All projects must adhere to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, also known as 36 CFR 800. During the environmental review, all projects are evaluated for their potential impact on properties designated as historic, eligible for historic status, or located within a historic district. This evaluation process is commonly referred to as the Section 106 Review.

Projects that may impact historic properties must be reviewed to guarantee that project plans will meet the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation and the California Historic Building Code. If necessary, HCIDLA will outline a set of conditions for the project proponent to follow, in addition to conducting a walkthrough at 50% and 100% completion to verify compliance.

Estimated Review Time

The complexity of each review may vary, depending on a project’s scope of work and the proposed project site’s existing environmental conditions. The following table contains an estimated review time for the most common projects undertaken by HCIDLA.
