Yes, if there is a written agreement between the entitlement community and urban county that fully details the activity to be carried out and how it will meet a national objective. HUD encourages the entitlement community and urban county to ensure their residents benefit in proportion to the percentage of CDBG funds contributed by each entity for the activity. For example, if the entitlement community and urban county each contributed 50 percent of the total funding for a child care center that served low/moderate income clientele, then it would be expected that approximately 50 percent of the children served live in the entitlement community and 50 percent of the beneficiaries are from the urban county.
