Our Mission in the Next 15 Minutes
  • Discuss the fundamentals of CDBG and CHIP as

  • Why is this important?
  • In order to submit a competitive application

5
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • Title 1 of the Housing and Community Development
    Act of 1974, as amended, created the CDBG program

6
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • The primary objective of the HCDA is the
    development of viable communities through the
    improvement of living conditions and the
    expansion of economic opportunities in cities and
    counties, principally for persons of low- and
    moderate-income.

7
Community HOME Investment Program (CHIP)
  • HOME is authorized under Title II of the
    Cranston-Gonzalez National Affordable Housing
    Act, as amended. Program regulations are at 24
    CFR Part 92
  • CHIP is one of the ways that Georgia uses HOME
    dollars to expand affordable housing

8
Community HOME Investment Program (CHIP)
  • HOME is the largest Federal block grant to State
    and local governments designed exclusively to
    create affordable housing for low-income
    households

9
Definition of LMI
  • Low- and moderate-income person means a member of
    a family having an income equal to or less than
    the Section 8 low-income limit established by
    HUD. Unrelated individuals will be considered as
    one-person families for this purpose.
  • That is, those families at 80 percent of less of
    Area Median Income (AMI)

10
CDBG CHIP Target LMI People
  • For CDBG, the law requires that overall benefit
    to L/M persons be at least 70
  • LMA, LMC, LMH, LMJ
  • For CHIP, the law requires 100 benefit to L/M
    persons

11
Typical CDBG Activities

Sources of Ideas for Project Development
  • Local Comprehensive Plan
  • Citizen Complaints
  • Previous Engineering Studies
  • Professional Standards
  • City Staff/RDC Staff/Consultant Staff
  • Other

16
Some Things to Think About
  • Strategy
  • What are the community development needs and have
    they been clearly defined?
  • What are the possible alternatives for addressing
    those needs, i.e., have you done any
    brainstorming?
  • Have you systematically evaluated the
    alternatives using cost as one criteria?
  • Is the alternative chosen eligible for funding?
  • Have you considered local funding?

17
Some Things to Think About
  • Impact
  • How much of the identified need will be
    eliminated?
  • How many people are benefiting?
  • Is the cost per person reasonable?
  • What is the extent of benefit to L/M income
    persons?
  • Is quality of life improved?

18
Some Things to Think About
  • Feasibility
  • Can the project be accomplished on time and
    within budget?
  • Are the funding sources available now?
  • Is the project ready to go?
  • Is the project blueprint specific enough that
    another knowledgeable person could carry it out?

19
CDBG L/M Area Benefit (LMA)
  • For projects that will benefit a geographic
    areatarget area or city-wide or county-wide
    areaeach activity (e.g., water improvements)
    must benefit at least 70 L/M persons and each
    geographic area chosen must contain a population
    of at least 70 L/M persons.

20
LMA (cont.)
  • As a practical matter, draw your area boundaries
    correctly and these issues will usually take care
    of themselves.
  • The boundaries proposed (and therefore the area
    where income surveys must be done) must include
    the entire area of benefit.

21
LMA (cont.)
Area of Non-benefit
Area Boundary Water Improvement Area of
Benefit TA Population of at least 70 L/M
22
CDBG L/M Clientele Benefit (LMC)
  • CDBG provides a place for L/M persons to
    receive a benefit
  • e.g., health center, senior center, etc.
  • 70 of recipients of benefit must be L/M income
    persons or
  • HUD must assume 100 of the recipients of the
    service are L/M persons

23
CDBG L/M Housing Benefit (LMH)
  • 100 Benefit to L/M Households

24
CDBG L/M Jobs Benefit
  • For Economic Development Projects
  • 51 of jobs must be held or made available to L/M
    persons

25
CHIP L/M Benefit
  • 100 Benefit to L/M Households

26
Lets Recap
  • CD is invested to improve the quality of life
  • Proposed activities must be grouped together in a
    meaningful way
  • Many sources for ideas for projects
  • Address all strategy, impact and feasibility
    issues
  • Projects must address the needs of L/M persons or
    households
  • Lots of eligible activities/some activities are
    ineligible
  • Submit completed applications on time
