What is HEROS?
HEROS stands for HUD Environmental Review Online System. The platform prepares, manages, shares, and stores supporting documentation to complete Environmental Reviews. The platform's purpose is to provide a pathway to environmental clearance for HUD/FHA-insured loans, CPD programs like HOME Funds, Community Development Block Grants (CDBG), and Section 8 vouchers.
Property owners and developers may not be aware of the nuances or timeframes associated with HEROS. Mistakes can cause delays and confusion that could result in inadequate funding and extra headaches along the way.
