Use of ACS for CDBG Distribution Mixed Bag for Oregon Cities but Overall a Statewide Increase.

New report from HUD HERE previews distributional impacts of using the American Community Survey data for the first time, using FY 2011 data. While the projections are NOT official formula allocations for FY 2012 they do signal direction of shift in distributions resulting from using ACS data.  

Pages 103-104 show Oregon projected allocations for entitlements with details on the formula components, page 34 shows impact on Oregon's statewide /non entitlement grant. Pages 28-30 show biggest gainers and losers nationwide.

I have prepared Oregon PDF HERE showing summary impacts on individual grantees and statewide impact.

Would appreciate any additional thoughts/corrections from CDBG recipients added as comments to this post; note that while Oregon share of national CDBG may be increasing, overall CDBG funding, including Oregon, will be decreasing as a result of FY 2012 appropriations.
