Notice CPD-02-05: Instructions for Urban County Qualification for Participation in CDBG for FYs 2003-2005


Date Published: May 2002


This Notice establishes requirements, procedures and deadlines to be followed in the urban county qualification process for Fiscal Years 2003-2005.  Information concerning specific considerations and responsibilities for urban counties is also provided.  This year is significant because it involves the largest cohort of counties scheduled to qualify or requalify in a single fiscal year, although no additional new potential urban counties were identified to be included in Attachment B because population data from the 2000 Census will also be used for the FY 2003 allocations.  As in the past, any delay in establishing the participating population in just one urban county may result in delays in determining the final allocations of CDBG funds for all entitlement and State CDBG grantees.  Therefore, HUD Field Offices and urban counties are expected to adhere to the deadlines in This Notice.   This Notice provides guidance for counties wishing to qualify or requalify for entitlement status as urban counties, as well as for existing urban counties that wish to include previously non-participating communities. This Notice includes five attachments which contain listings of all currently qualified urban counties (Attachment A); counties that can potentially qualify for the first time or requalify this qualification period (Attachment B); counties scheduled to qualify or requalify in FY 2003 for FY 2004 - 2006 (Attachment C); counties scheduled to qualify or requalify in FY 2004 for FY 2005 - 2007 (Attachment D); and currently qualified urban counties that can add nonparticipating units of government for the remaining two or three years of their qualification period (Attachment E).
