Notice CPD-97-06: Instructions for Urban County Qualification for Participation in CDBG for FYs 1998-2000


Date Published: April 1997


This Notice establishes requirements, procedures and deadlines to be followed in the urban county qualification process for Fiscal Years 1998-2000 as well as information concerning specific considerations and responsibilities for urban counties.  Special attention should be directed to the deadlines.  Delay in establishing the participating population in just one urban county may result in delays in determining the 1 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.   Basically, This Notice provides guidance for counties wishing to qualify or requalify for entitlement status as urban counties as well as existing urban counties that wish to include previously non-participating communities.   The schedule for qualifying urban counties is coordinated with qualifying HOME consortia in order to be able to operate both the CDBG and HOME programs using the same urban county configurations.  The CDBG urban county qualification process for the FY 1998-2000 qualification period will start April 30, 1997, and run through September 5, 1997.  This will provide HUD ample time before the September 30 deadline for FY 1998 funding under the HOME Program to notify counties that they qualify as urban counties under the CDBG Program.
