Program Services Announcements

The Environmental Review Module (ERM) Will Go Live On April 2, 2015.

In anticipation of the April 22nd HOME funds release, a list of Frequently Asked Questions has been created to assist in the environmental review process and to expedite the creation of activity set-ups.

Why is this important?

Environmental reviews will now be linked to the creation and submission of activity set-ups in the Housing Contract System.

The following resources are available to assist in this process at the link below:

  • Training Manual for the Environmental Review Module (HCS),
  • Video of the recent ERM webinar training
  • Frequently Asked Questions document with multiple scenarios created to answer questions about existing clearances, activity set-ups and submissions methods suggested.
