No. A joint agreement between an entitlement grantee and an urban county permits the urban county to administer an entitlement grantee's CDBG program in addition to its own. A cooperation agreement allows an urban county to carry out eligible activities in participating units of general local government (UGLGs) where it cannot undertake essential community development and housing assistance activities. Therefore, UGLGs cannot have joint agreements with urban counties. Only an entitlement grantee may have a joint agreement with an urban county.
