Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Louisiana's "Road Home"
Road Home properties face inspection crunch

After months of behind-the-scenes delays, the Louisiana Land Trust is moving forward with thousands of final environmental reviews that must be done before Road Home properties can be returned to the market.

Federal environmental law requires that all properties rehabilitated under a U.S. grant program such as The Road Home undergo a site-specific environmental review. The state has known about this requirement since the 2005 inception of the Department of Housing and Urban Development-funded program. But while other details of the program's implementation have long since been ironed out, the environmental inspection requirement remained unresolved until last week.
