The urban county needs to establish policies and procedures governing its process for selecting activities for funding, including when and how a county may provide funds to participating units of general local government (UGLGs). However, the CDBG regulations give each grantee the flexibility to design its program based on locally-identified needs and priorities. It is common for county governments to work with their participating UGLGs to help design the county's program. That process may or may not be spelled out in the cooperation agreements with participating UGLGs.
