The types of communities contributing to the population threshold for a county are incorporated units of general local government (UGLGs) that don't qualify as entitlement grantees and choose to participate in the urban county's CDBG program and unincorporated areas. The population of entitlement communities (those having a population over 50,000) located within an urban county is not included. (A metropolitan city may relinquish its entitlement status so that a county can qualify as an urban county.) The population of unincorporated areas of the county are automatically included.
