CDBG Formula Targeting to Community Development Need


Author Info

  • HUD – PD&R
Registered author(s):


    This report offers four alternative formulas that would substantially improve targeting to community development need. Each provides trade-offs in terms of formula simplicity, the amount of funds reallocated, and the type of community development need to be accorded the highest priority. It’s important to recognize that any change to the existing formula that improves targeting to need will result in a significant redistribution of funds. Nonetheless, the Department hopes that serious attention will be given to the alternatives presented in this report. We look forward to working with Congress, CDBG grantees, and other stakeholders to discuss alternatives to the current formula.
