Lawrence County, 200 W Gaines, Suite 201, Lawrenceburg, TN

Project Title: Lawrence County 2012-13 THDA HOME Grant 
Location: Lawrence County Boundaries 
Purpose of Project: Improve housing conditions for low-to-moderate income persons 
Estimated Cost: $250,000 

Lawrence County will undertake the project described above with HOME funds from 
the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the National 
Affordable Housing Act of 1990. Lawrence County is certifying to the Tennessee Housing 
Development Agency that Lawrence County and J. Mack Chandler, County Executive in 
his official capacity as Certifying Officer consent to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal 
courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to environmental 
reviews, decision making, and action; and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. 
The legal effect of the certification is that upon THDA's approval, Lawrence County 
may use the funds, and THDA will have satisfied its responsibilities under the National 
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 and the related laws and authorities. THDA will accept 
an objection to its approval of the release of funds and acceptance of the certification 
only if it is one of the following bases: 

that the certification was not in fact executed by the chief executive offi cer or 
other officer of applicant approved by THDA; or 
that applicant's environmental review for the project omitted a required 
finding, or step applicable to the project in the Environmental Review Process. 
other specific ground in HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58.75. 
Because the grant award year Project will involve activities at several scattered sites 
for which the exact location will not be known for some time, an environmental review 
strategy has been developed including Site Specific Checklists, to assure that the 
required environmental review is completed for each site. If environmental factors are 
identified as having an impact on the project or any of the specific project sites, they will 
be addressed on a case by case basis. 

Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedure 
(24 CFR Part 58), and may be addressed to Tennessee Housing Development Agency, 
Andrew Jackson Building, Third Floor, 502 Deaderick Street, Nashville, TN 37243,
