Action Requested

Approval of Interlocal Agreements with the Town of  Longboat Key, City of Bradenton Beach, City of Holmes Beach, and City of Anna Maria, and authorization for the County Administrator to execute the agreements.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

24 CFR 570.307(a) of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) regulations


11.1.4 Efficiency in Service Delivery (Comprehensive Plan)

Background Discussion
  • In 2002, Manatee County became an entitlement community for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding from the federal government. 
  • In order to become an entitlement community, the County needed a population of at least 200,000.  
  • In order to meet the minimum population requirement in 2002, the County needed to include the populations of the island communities.   
  • Although unincorporated Manatee County has grown and meets the minimum required population for entitlement communities on its own, the CDBG program is a formula grant program with population size being one of the variables. 
  • Through these interlocal agreements, Manatee County will receive a higher allocation.
  • HUD requires that Urban Counties requalify every three years.  This requalification will be effective for program years 2017-2019.
  • The County has opted for new interlocal agreements to address new language that HUD is requiring.  These interlocal agreements will replace the agreements executed in 2001, which included automatic extension provisions.
