A

No. There is no regulatory or statutory requirement for grantees to have written strategies and plans in place to address code violations before carrying out CDBG-assisted code enforcement. However, having a written strategy in place may help a grantee ensure that it complies with all program requirements, by spelling out the definition of deteriorated to be used, how the grantee will identify eligible areas and their boundaries, what other programs/resources will be provided to arrest the decline, how the grantee will measure effectiveness of the program, and how often the grantee will evaluate the program to determine whether continued CDBG assistance is appropriate in a given area, etc.
