CDBG Entitlement FAQ
Q

A CDBG Entitlement grantee wants to carry out homeownership assistance under 24 CFR 570.201(n) in a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area (NRSA). If this is the only housing activity the grantee plans to carry out in the NRSA, may all the units be considered a single structure for national objective compliance purposes?

No. Although 24 CFR 570.208(d)(5)(ii) allows housing activities for which CDBG funds have been obligated during a program year in the strategy area to be considered a single structure for national objective compliance purposes, the requirement that homeownership assistance activities carried out under 570.201(n) be restricted to low- and moderate-income persons is statutory. Each homeowner receiving assistance must be low- or moderate-income. Statutory requirements supersede regulatory requirements.
