Ushers Ferry Historic Village Lodge, Cedar Rapids, Iowa (May 2011)
In June 2008 a major disaster was declared of which Ushers Ferry Historic Village at 5925 Seminole Valley Trail NE in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, along with large portions of Cedar Rapids and the surrounding area experienced extensive damage from flooding of the Cedar River and its tributaries. The facility applied for financial assistance for repairs pursuant to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief, 42 U.S.C. Section 5121-5206. NEPA requires that Federal agencies evaluate the environmental effects of their Proposed and Alternative Actions before deciding to fund an action. Regulations are included in Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 1500–1508. They require the preparation of an Environmental Assessment (EA) that includes an evaluation of alternative means of addressing the problem and a discussion of the potential environmental impacts of a proposed Federal action. An EA, as it relates to the FEMA program, must be prepared according to the requirements of the Stafford Act and 44 CFR, Part 10. This section of the Federal Code requires that FEMA take environmental considerations into account when authorizing funding or approving actions. This EA was conducted in accordance with both CEQ and FEMA regulations for NEPA and will address the environmental issues associated with the FEMA grant funding as applied towards the recovery options for Ushers Ferry Historic Village.
