After HUD has notified an urban county of its eligibility, a county must contact each unit of general local government (UGLG) in writing and offer them the opportunity to participate or defer participation in the urban county's CDBG program. The UGLG must write back to the urban county with its decision to participate or defer participation in the county's CDBG program. The deadline to complete this step is contained in the annual Urban County Notice. Where the county has essential housing and community development powers within incorporated local jurisdictions, the county may notify the UGLG that it will be included in the urban county unless it opts out of urban county participation.
