Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Type, Section or Code
Not a Project (Public Resources Code § 21065; Guidelines § 15378(b)(4))
Reasons for Exemption
Project involves authorizing and entering into a block grant agreement to facilitate the potential future funding of projects that have not yet been selected. This action is not subject to CEQA because it involves the creation of government funding mechanisms and other government fiscal activities that do not involve any commitment to any specific project that may result in a potentially significant physical impact on the environment. (State CEQA Guidelines, Section 15378(b)(4).)
