(To be completed only for federally-assisted housing projects located within 1000 ft. of a major roadway,

3000 ft. of an active railway, 15 miles of a civil airport or military airfield.) 

Grantee:   Grant No.:                                                                                

Project Address:    Applicant Name:  Property owner's name

1. The project is within 1,000 feet of a major roadway.    ☐  ☐  

2. The project is within 3,000 feet of an active railway.    ☐  ☐  

3. The project is within 15 miles of a military or civil airfield.   ☐  ☐ 

If there is a “No” response to all three statements above, STOP; additional noise assessment is not required. A “Yes” response to any one of the above statements means that noise assessment is required.  Continue with this checklist.   

For guidance about the assessment process and attenuation and/or mitigation of noise hazards, see:

HUD’s Noise Guidebook:  https://www.hudexchange.info/resource/313/hud-noise-guidebook/

and HUD’s DNL Calculator: https://www.hudexchange.info/environmental-review/dnl-calculator/ 

For further information about whether a nearby airport has enough traffic to contribute a significant amount of noise, please complete HUD’s airport worksheet which can be found at the following link:  https://www.hud.gov/sites/documents/AIRPORTNOISEWKSHT.PDF

.  Please attach the completed worksheet to this checklist.  

If required, attenuation and/or mitigation measures must be approved by MSHDA’s Certifying Officer prior to commitment of funds.   

Project Activity: 

 New construction or conversion of use from non-residential to residential.  If the noise level exceeds 65 dB, attenuation or project relocation is required. See HUD’s Noise Guidebook for attenuation guidelines.  


Purchase or resale of existing building (without rehabilitation). Consider environmental noise as a marketability factor.  Noise exposure by itself will not result in the denial of HUD support for the resale and purchase of otherwise acceptable existing buildings.   

 Major rehabilitation project (i.e., total project cost >75% property value before rehab). If the noise level exceeds 65 dB, attenuation is strongly encouraged.  See HUD’s Noise Guidebook for attenuation guidelines.   

 Minor rehabilitation project (i.e., total project cost < 75% property value before rehab).  If the noise level exceeds 65 dB, inform the owner there is a noise impact.  Attenuation is suggested but not required if the cost is prohibitive.
