2000 Census Tract
Community Development Block Grant Eligibility Maps
(Revised)
 

The attached revised Community Development Block Grant Eligibility maps show those 2000 census tracts in which Community Development (CD) funds may be used for an activity, the benefits of which are available to all the residents in a particular area, where at least 51% of the residents are low- and moderate-income persons ("CD area benefit" or "CD eligible area") according to the 2000 Census.  Low- and moderate-income persons are defined as persons living in households with incomes below 80 percent of the median household income ($47,100 for a 4-person household in 2000).  The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released revised New York City CD Eligible Census Tracts data based on the 2000 Census at the end of March 2007.  Revisions to the CD Eligible Census Tract data are the result of changes in the metropolitan area definitions used to calculate HUD median family income limits and estimates.  The new definitions are based on the current U.S. Office of Management and Budget metropolitan statistical area (MSA) definitions.

The revised data supersede CD Eligible Census Tract data originally released in February 2003.  As a result, updated CD Eligible Census Tract maps have been generated to replace the maps previously created in March 2003.

HUD encouraged local municipalities which receive Community Development Block Grant funds to begin using the new data to determine area eligibility as early as possible.  The City of New York’s Community Development Program Year began January 1, 2007.  The City of New York began to use the revised 2000 Census data to determine CD area eligibility commencing with City Fiscal Year 2008 (CFY08) CD-funded activities, which began July 1, 2007.  Programs supported by CD funds determined by the original 2000 data remained eligible until June 30, 2007.

Therefore, City Agencies and not-for-profit organizations who intend to request CD monies to fund area wide activities which will be undertaken in the upcoming City Fiscal Year should use the updated 2000 Census Tract Eligibility data to determine their respective programs' area eligibility.
