The Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 budget for the Department of Housing and Urban Development has been enacted. These spreadsheets provide full-year allocations for the Office of Community Planning and Development's (CPD) formula programs: Community Development Block Grants (CDBG); HOME Investment Partnerships (HOME), Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA); and Emergency Shelter Grants (ESG).
The allocations reflect the level of funding approved for these programs in your community. The amounts also reflect approved grant reductions and include any reallocated funds for the CDBG and HOME programs. Under the CDBG program, some metropolitan cities have a joint grant agreement with an urban county to administer their CDBG grant. The urban county amounts shown in this table do not include the funds allocated to any metropolitan city. The metropolitan city and urban county amounts are shown separately.
The CDBG allocations reflect adjustments made to the allocations of all entitled cities and urban counties on May 21, 2009. An adjustment was necessary to correct the CDBG allocations of 27 entitled communities which had successfully appealed the estimated population that the Census Bureau had published for them in the summer of 2008. None of the previously calculated CDBG allocations to States, Insular Areas, or the State of Hawaii counties were affected by this latest recalculation.
For the communities which now will receive a lower CDBG grant, most experienced a reduction on average of $60 per $1 million from their previously calculated grant. The principal reason for the reduction was that the successful appeal by 10 communities diluted the population factor for all other communities which receive their CDBG grant due to the formula that has population as a factor. For the communities which will now receive a higher CDBG grant, most experienced an increase on average of $2400 per $1 million from their previously calculated grant. The principal reason for the increase was that the successful appeal by 17 communities reduced the growth lag factor for those communities resulting in a reduction to their grant. The extra money caused by their grant reductions was shared among the remainder of the communities which receive their CDBG grant due to the formula that has growth lag as a factor.
