Notice CPD-98-05: Instructions for Urban County Qualification for Participation in CDBG for FYs 1999-2001


Date Published: April 1998


This Notice establishes requirements, procedures and deadlines to be followed in the urban county qualification process for Fiscal Years 1999-2001 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 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.  This Notice should be provided to all presently qualified urban counties, to each county that can qualify for the first time or requalify for Fiscal Years 1999-2001, and to each State administering the State CDBG program which includes a potentially eligible urban county.  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 2000 (Attachment C) and FY 2001 (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). Adjustments to the 1996  population estimates may result in the addition of new counties.
