REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about May 31, 2024 the Montana Department of Commerce (Commerce) will submit a request to the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of HOME Investment Partnerships Program American Rescue Plan (HOME-ARP) funds under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing Act of 1990, as amended by Section 3205 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, to undertake a project known as Samaritan House Family Living for the purpose of building an apartment building and community center at 1110 2nd Street West in Kalispell. Commerce anticipates allocating $1,500,000 in HOME-ARP funds and $750,000 in Housing Trust Fund (HTF) funds with $1,300,000 in Emergency Rental Assistance Other Uses funds to develop 18 units of rental housing for individuals and families that meet the definition of a qualifying population under the HOME-ARP program. The estimated total project cost is $8,963,165. FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT Commerce 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 Montana Housing, 301 South Park Avenue, Helena, Montana and may be examined or copied weekdays 8:00 A.M to 5:00 P.M. PUBLIC COMMENTS Any individual, group, or agency may submit written comments on the ERR to the Montana Department of Commerce. All comments received by May 30, 2024 will be considered by the Montana Department of Commerce prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing. ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION The Montana Department of Commerce certifies to HUD that Paul Green in his capacity as Director of the Montana Department of Commerce 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 Samaritan House, Inc. to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the Montana Department of Commerce’s certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual 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 of the Montana Department of Commerce; (b) the Montana Department of Commerce 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 development process have committed funds, incurred costs or undertaken activities 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 via email in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Noemi Ghirghi, CPD Region VIII Director, at CPDRROFDEN@hud.gov. Potential objectors should contact CPDRROFDEN@hud.gov to verify the actual last day of the objection period.

Statute at 75-5-321, MCA requires the department to adopt rules related to narrative nutrient standards and an Adaptive Management Program. Senate Bill 358 also requires that the department amend rules to delete all references to Department Circular DEQ-12A, Department Circular DEQ-12B, base numeric nutrient standards, and nutrient standards variances. NEW RULE I (Translation of Narrative Nutrient Standards) describes how narrative nutrient standards will be translated to determine if water quality standards are met in state surface waters. NEW RULE II (Implementation of the Adaptive Management Program for Narrative Nutrient Standards) describes the implementation of an Adaptive Management Program within the Montana Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (MPDES) permitting program. Department Circular DEQ-15 (March 2024 edition) provides procedures and requirements related to both new rules. This action also (a) incorporates permit fees related to the new Adaptive Management Program; (b) amends related nondegradation rules; (c) repeals the framework rule ARM 17.30.1388 which is rendered unnecessary and redundant per adoption of the new rules; (d) repeals ARM 17.30.660; and (e) improves rule clarity. On June 10, 2024, at 10:00 a.m., a public hearing will be held in room 111 of the Metcalf Building, 1520 East Sixth Avenue, Helena, Montana, to consider rule adoption, amendment, and repeal as proposed in MAR 17-434 in the Montana Administrative Register. You may also join the hearing virtually via Zoom. The notice of public hearing on proposed adoption, amendment, and repeal, and more information, is available on the department’s website at https://deq.mt.gov/public/water-public. The department will make reasonable accommodation for persons with disabilities who wish to participate in this rulemaking process or need an alternative accessible format of this notice (see the MAR notice on the website for details). Copies of Department Circular DEQ-15 may be obtained from the Department of Environmental Quality, P.O. Box 200901, Helena, MT 59620-0901, or on the department’s website at https://deq.mt.gov/public/water-public.
