Background and Discussion:
Each year, the Harris County Community Services Department (CSD), a "Participating Jurisdiction" as an Entitlement Community of CDBG funding, receives an award from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD regulations allow from 10% to 20% of the annual award to be utilized for administering the programs. CSD also receives Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant funds that require local match. The cost of administering federally funded programs in excess of the amounts provided by the agency is defined as "Discretionary Match". Required match is defined as the amount of funds the County is required by contract or applicable laws and regulations with the granting agencies to expend on a grant program.
