REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about April 28, 2024, the City of Atlanta will authorize The Housing Authority of the City of Atlanta, Georgia ("AH") to submit a request to the HUD Atlanta Regional Office for the release of Moving to Work ("MTW") funds under Section 8 the Housing Act of 1937, as amended, to undertake a project known as Columbia Heritage Senior Preservation for the purpose of rehabilitating the Columbia Heritage Senior Residences, a residential multifamily building located at 1900 Perry Boulevard NW in Atlanta, Georgia catered to citizens 62 years of age and older and containing a hospitality suite, seven market rates units, and 124 units that receive Project-Based Vouchers via a HomeFlex agreement with AH. The rehabilitation includes the replacement of building roofs, windows, doors, and all HVAC units, interior unit updates, modifications to walls lacking brick cladding to add RC channel and drywall, repair of existing stucco and trim, new hallway flooring, in-building primary health care facility, and fitness center, enhancements to security cameras and site lighting, and upgrades to the leasing and management areas, exercise equipment, and computer lab. The rehabilitation project, estimated to cost $28,659,888 would be funded by the developer. AH funds will not be utilized to support the rehabilitation activities. AH would continue to utilize MTW funds to provide HomeFlex vouchers to the property. No ground disturbance is anticipated. CONDITIONAL FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT The City of Atlanta has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment if the conditions for Noise Abatement and Control are followed. 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). The ERR will be made available to the public for review electronically.

Lonon in her capacity as Commissioner 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.
