Supplemental Information for Regular CDBG Application Process
These limits define low-moderate income for Cumberland County. Moderate income is calculated by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) as 80% of the Area Median Income (AMI), adjusted for household size.
The Cumberland County Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program falls under a special rule allowing more locations to quality for "area-wide" activities beyond the standard 51% low- or moderate-income requirement.
One quarter of census block groups in our 25 member communities qualify for area-wide activities under the exception rule.
