RADBlast! PART 50 ON-LINE ENVIRONMENTAL REPORT SUBMISSIONS and CNA e-Tool FOLLOW-UP Q&A SESSION

Streamlining Part 50 Environmental Reviews
Recap's Transaction Managers currently complete Part 50 Environmental Reviews using HUD's Environmental Review On-Line System, or HEROS.
To streamline the review process, beginning February 1, 2018, Public Housing Agencies (PHAs) and their development partners will be able to enter environmental reports directly into HEROS. Third-party user testing is currently being completed. Public Housing Field Offices and their PHAs should be on the look-out for notice of HEROS training in early January. This initial launch of third-party entry into HEROS will be entirely voluntary.

For any PHA interested in submitting Part 50 Environmental Reports through HEROS beginning in February 2018, we encourage them to begin user registration procedures.  To register, users should provide the information in the attached Excel file, HEROS Access Request Form – Part 50  Partners.xlsx.  You may use the same form to submit requests for each user in your organization.  E-mail the completed form to resourcedesk@radresource.net with the Subject Line: HEROS Registration.
 
Implementation of CNA e-Tool for Non-FHA Transactions
As a reminder, all non-FHA Financing Plans submitted on/after February 1, 2018, must include the new CNA e-Tool. A webinar reviewing these requirements was held on December 7, 2017. A recording of that webinar can be obtained here. A follow-up Q&A session will be held from 2:30 to 3:30 est on Thursday, January 18. Please mark your calendars. Registration procedures will be forwarded shortly.
