Notice CPD-03-04: Instructions for Urban County Qualification for Participation in CDBG for FYs 2004-2006


Date Published: April 2003


This Notice establishes requirements, procedures and deadlines to be followed in the urban county qualification process for Fiscal Years 2004-2006.  Information concerning specific considerations and responsibilities for urban counties is also provided.  A listing of any newly identified potential urban counties for this qualification period based on 2002 population estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau, if any, will be provided electronically at a later time.  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 nonparticipating 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 2004 for FY 2005 - 2007 (Attachment C); counties scheduled to qualify or requalify in FY 2005 for FY 2006 - 2008 (Attachment D); and currently qualified urban counties that can add nonparticipating units of government for the remaining one or two years of their qualification period (Attachment E).  As noted above, additions to Attachment B may be provided separately.
