Georgia Intergovernmental Review Procedures
Intergovernmental Review Procedures
On September 29, 2004, USDA Rural Development
and the Georgia State Clearinghouse entered into a Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) concerning the review of projects funded under
USDA programs. The MOU states that the Intergovernmental
Review is waived in certain cases that involve technical assistance,
equipment purchases, or other miscellaneous issues i.e. refinancing,
inventory, or working capital. Intergovernmental
Review is still needed for projects involving construction,
renovation, or rehabilitation that will involve state funds or for
those projects that will have a state-wide impact.
With the recent retirement of Ms. Barbara
Jackson, of the Georgia State Clearinghouse, the State Clearinghouse
Office will be closed and no longer be available to provide
intergovernmental reviews of Rural Development applications.
However, certain federal proposals not affected by the above MOU are
still subject to the Executive Order 12372 Review Process.
Please see the document
Intergovernmental and Environmental Review Guidance below for
instructions and guidance to initiate the Executive Order 12372
Please feel free to review any of the
following documents in order to learn more about the new
requirements for review within Georgia.
