08/10/2022

Greg Zephir, Town Manager; manager@troy.nc.us; Town of Troy; 315 N Main St, Troy, NC 27371; PH: 

910-572-3661 / TDD: 800-735- 2962 (711); https://troy.nc.us/




TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:

On or about August 18, 2022, or eight (8) days after publication of this notice, the Town of Troy, 

NC, will request the North Carolina Department of Commence (DOC) Rural Economic Development 

Division (REDD) to release Federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of 

the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 (PL 93-383), as amended, for the Town of Troy FY 

18/19 CDBG Neighborhood Revitalization Housing Project. The project is funded with approximately 

$750,000 of CDBG funds (100% of total project cost).

The proposed project includes the demolition and reconstruction of approximately four sub-standard 

homes, owned and occupied by local low-to-moderate income (LMI) residents. All four homes require 

extensive repairs that would be cost more than half the value of the home. Each home will be 

rebuilt on the same site. Homes are located on North Carolina on Barnhill, Faduma, Rush, and 

Williams streets. The activities proposed are categorically excluded under U.S. Department of 

Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations at 24 CFR Part 58 from National Environmental 

Policy Act (NEPA) requirements.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

An Environmental Review Record (ERR) documenting the environmental determinations for this project 

is on file at the above address and is available for public examination and copying upon between 

the hours of 9 AM and 4 PM Monday – Friday. All interested agencies, groups, and persons are 

invited to submit written comments for consideration by the Town to the above address on or before 

August 17, 2022, or seven (7) days after this publication. All such comments so received will be 

considered by the Town prior to authorizing submission of a Request for Release of Funds.

ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATION

The Town certifies to REDD that Mayor Craig Jones, in their official capacity, 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. 

The legal effect of the certification is that upon its approval, the Town may use the CDBG Program 

funds and REDD will have satisfied its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and 

authorities.

OBJECTIONS TO STATE RELEASE OF FUNDS

REDD will accept an objection to its approval and release of funds and the Town’s certification 

until September 2, 2022, or for a period of fifteen (15) days following the anticipated submission 

date, or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if it is on one of the 

following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Town’s Certifying Officer; (b) the 

Town omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations; (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 release of 

funds by REDD; 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 58.76) 

and shall be addressed to Valerie Moore Fegans, CDBG Director at REDD, 4346 Mail Service Center 

(27699-4346), 301 N Wilmington Street, Raleigh, North Carolina, 27601; 

valerie.fegans@commerce.nc.gov; PH: 919- 814-4673 (TDD 711). Potential objectors should contact 

REDD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
