REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about June 19, 2022, 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 funds under the Housing Act of 1937, as amended, for the following project: Project: 380 Eva Davis Way SE, Atlanta, GA 30317 Purpose: AH is proposing to sell the high-rise apartment building (East Lake Highrise GA006000300) to an entity controlled by Columbia Residential, a real estate development company; that owns, manages, and develops affordable housing for the purposes of investing in the physical rehabilitation of the property. The property will continue to be reserved for occupancy by low-income households, and AH will maintain ownership of the land. Columbia Residential proposes to make significant capital improvements to the building to enhance the living environment for the residents, including replacement of windows, improvements to the residential amenities, and improvements to the units. AH will provide project-based voucher (PBV) rental assistance on all 149 RAD units at the RAD contract rents. The subject property is located at 380 Eva Davis Way SE, Atlanta, GA 30317. CONDITIONAL FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT The City of Atlanta has conditionally determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment provided that the conditions placed on the project regarding Contamination and Toxic Substances as stated in the Environmental Assessment, are satisfied. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. The Developer of the project must satisfy the conditions enumerated in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) in order to proceed with this project. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record. The ERR will be made available to the public for review electronically. Please submit your request by email to gmenvironmentalreview@atlantaga.gov or to priya.vellaithambi@atlantahousing.org.

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. HUD's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities and allows the Atlanta Housing Authority to use Program funds.

Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76) and shall be addressed to Robert L. Kenner Robert.Kenner@hud.gov.
