Eligible Activities

 

Sub-Recipient Application

 

Income Survey Forms

 

Keep in mind that your project must meet one of the three National Objectives:

 

1.    primarily benefit low and moderate income persons

2.    eliminate or prevent slums and blight

3.    meet other urgent local community development needs

 

It has been determined that the following groups of people are determined to be low-or-moderate income and projects that benefit these groups would meet the LMI National Objective without an income survey:abused children, elderly persons, battered spouses, homeless persons, severely disabled adults, illiterate adults, persons living with the disease AIDS, and migrant farm workers.

 

Notes on Income Surveys:The time span in which an income survey must be complete in order to be considered valid is 3 months.All households in the project area must be surveyed within a 3 month time frame or the survey cannot be used.
