CDD Target Rate Calculation Resource

The Community Development Division (CDD) has updated the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Communities Survey (ACS) data set 2011-2015 for the calculation of local government target rates. The Treasure State Endowment Program (TSEP) and Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) programs use ACS information as the base data set to calculate applicant target rates for community infrastructure systems.

These calculated rates, along with other demographic information, are components of the review and analysis of applications submitted to the programs for funding requests. Applications to be submitted in 2018 or later for TSEP or CDBG programs must use the 2015 ACS data for the calculation of target rates for an applicant.

Please visit our website to review this information. Feel free to contact DOCCDD@mt.gov or 406.841.2770 if you have any questions.
