LMI Census Tract and Block Group Websites
Due to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2010 redistricting of census tracts and block groups many communities have experienced boundary adjustments, or were renamed. As a result, when HUD released the 2014 LMI data it could only be attached to the current redistricted census tracts and block groups. In order to make it easier for folks to identify the LMI areas in their communities two websites have been constructed (see below) that allow for the viewer to zoom into their community by typing in the address or place. In order to determine the LMI percentage simply click once on the census tract or block group.
HUD Income Survey Requirements for Entitlement Communities
If a census tract/block group does not fall within a 51% or greater LMI, applicants may elect to conduct an income survey to validate eligible areas. HUD requirements for conducting surveys can be found by visiting:
