Concentration Mapping Tool

For 2016 and later applications DCA is requiring that concentration maps from our mapping tool.  Go to the Concentration Maps link and click the arrows to the right until you see 'CDBG Applicant Concentration 2016'.  After selecting the concentration maps search for your city or county in the search box.  Make sure the whole jurisdiction applying for the grant shows.  On the upper left and upper right there are buttons with stacked squares that let you turn the layers on and off. We need 3 maps, each one showing only one of the concentrations.
