A

No. Although the demographics of the participating UGLGs are used to calculate the amount of the county's CDBG grant, the UGLG must be planning to carry out a CDBG-assisted activity to receive a CDBG grant award from the urban county.

An urban county may distribute CDBG funds in the manner that it chooses. It may require UGLGs to apply for funding under a competitive or noncompetitive selection process, distribute funds among UGLGs using a formula of its choosing, provide funds to public or private nonprofit organizations, carry out activities directly, or any combination of the above.
