New Tool Maps Access to Federal Housing and Community Development Funds

The Urban Institute has released the Community Development Financial Flow data tool to compare how counties have been accessing federal funds and inform strategy design about local capacity to access federal funds. Using data from 2011 to 2015, researchers measured the average federal funding for housing, small business, impact finance and other community development efforts to all U.S. counties with populations greater than 50,000. The District of Columbia, San Francisco County and St. Louis City were the three jurisdictions receiving the largest combined amounts of federal capital flows during the period, while Puerto Rico had the lowest federal capital flow of the large counties.
