Notice CPD-05-06: Suggested Survey Methodology to Determine Percentage of Low- and Moderate-Income Persons in the Service Area of CDBG Funded Activity


Date Published: July 2005


This Notice describes suggested procedures for conducting a survey to ascertain whether or not a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)-funded activity designed to benefit an area generally qualifies as primarily benefiting LMI persons.  HUD urges field staff to review This Notice to improve their understanding of regulatory requirements and basic techniques that may be used in conducting incomes surveys.  HUD’s regulatory requirements for conducting a survey to determine the percentage of LMI persons in the service area of a CDBG-funded activity are located at 24 CFR 570.208(a)(1)(vi) for the Entitlement program and at 24 CFR 570.483(b)(1)(i) for the State program.  CDBG grantees are urged to use these suggested procedures or other comparable methods when they conduct surveys to ascertain that at least 51 percent of the residents of the service area of a CDBG-funded activity are LMI persons.
