The newly incorporated unit of general local government (UGLG) will remain part of the urban county's CDBG program as an unincorporated area until the county requalifies. This means that the county will continue to have the ability to undertake essential community development and housing assistance activities in that area without a cooperation agreement. Once the county requalifies, and the newly incorporated UGLG is recognized by the Census Bureau as such, the county will have to notify the newly incorporated area of its option to remain with the county as an UGLG or opt out of participating in the county's CDBG program.
