Each grantee certifies over a specified period of time (one (1), two (2), or three (3) years), a minimum of 70% of CDBG funds shall be expended for activities benefitting low to moderate income persons. Code enforcement may count toward the overall benefit requirement if the national objective of low and moderate area (LMA) is used. When code enforcement activities are undertaken under the slum and blight area (SBA) or urgent need national objectives, these activities will not count toward the minimum 70% requirement.
