A community with a below average median household income (MHI) and/or a Low-and Moderate-Income (LMI) becomes potentially eligible for USDA long-term, low-interest loans and grants. An MHI/LMI survey is necessary to give an accurate representation of a community’s eligibility. These surveys are also used in obtaining Community Development Block Grant Funding (CDBG).
MHI/LMI is no longer determined by the 10-year federal census which is received by every household. Instead, it's determined by the US Census Bureau American Community Survey. The new method samples random households to obtain income data rather than being received by every household in the community. This method has led to inaccuracies and inflated community median household incomes.
G&G Municipal Consulting and Grant Writing provides reasonably priced, custom-tailored MHI/LMI surveys that will assist your community in potentially obtaining low-interest loans and grants for infrastructure improvements, thereby providing tax savings to the community.
We reach out to often overlooked pockets of the community to ensure a level of inclusivity in which all households are counted; knocking on doors where survey response rates are low to ensure the survey is accurate. Our goal is to obtain the lowest possible MHI. Generally, a low MHI equates to more state and federal funding.
