Date Published: May 2015
For Entitlements, HUD’s definition of code enforcement can be found under 24 CFR 570.202(c). The definition is stated as: Costs incurred for inspection for code violations and enforcement of codes (e.g. salaries and related expenses of code enforcement inspectors and legal proceedings, but not including the cost of correcting the violations) in deteriorating or deteriorated areas when such enforcement together with planned public or private improvements, rehabilitation, or services to be provided may be expected to arrest the decline of the area.
For States the definition is found under Section 105(a)(3) of the HCDA and is stated as: the use of CDBG funds for code enforcement in deteriorated or deteriorating areas in which such enforcement, together with the public or private improvements or services to be provided, may be expected to arrest the decline of the area.
