Public Services

National Objective

CDBG-funded public service activities are typically categorized under the Low-Mod Income (LMI) Benefit National Objective as Low-Mod Clientele (LMC) activities. Limited Clientele (LMC) activities must benefit a specific targeted group of persons, of which 51% must be Low-Mod Income. In order to meet the LMC criteria, the activity must:

  • Serve at least 51% Low-Moderate Income persons, as evidenced by documentation and data concerning beneficiary family size and income;
  • Have income-eligibility requirements which limit the service to persons meeting the LMI income requirement, as evidenced by the administering agency’s procedures, intake/application forms, income limits, and other sources of documentation; and
  • Serve primarily LMI persons.
