Income Survey Methodology
In order to determine the percent of CDBG funds benefiting low and moderate-income persons, it is often necessary to have income data for the specific area affected by the CDBG-financed improvement. In some cases, U. S. Census data may be used, if the area benefited is reasonably coterminous with census tract, block group. In the absence of these convenient data, many applicants will need data collected from a simple survey to substantiate benefit to low and moderate-income persons. Because these surveys will be required of many CDBG applicants, below is a methodology that can be consistently applied to all area benefit projects.
