Figure 15: Total Count of Unmet Need by County (as of December 7, 2017).
HUD requirements for this CDBG-DR allocation specify that the GLO must expend a minimum of 70 percent to benefit LMI populations. The GLO used self-reported applicant information provided by FEMA to calculate what percentage of the population in the eligible counties falls into certain income categories. Approximately 45 percent of the unmet need is below 80 percent in the LMI category. The unmet need for the LMI population is over $4.28 billion dollars. The unmet need by income category for all eligible counties can be seen in the following table.
A breakdown of unmet need by total cost per county for owner-occupied homes is represented in the following map. Harris County had an applicant count of 45,802 totaling over $3 billion.
The GLO calculated the percentage of population of renter households within LMI categories. Approximately 68 percent of the unmet need is below 80 percent LMI category. The unmet need by income category for renters in all eligible counties can be seen in the following table.
