Question

Who should be included as household members?

Answer

It is important to note that CDBG uses household income instead of family income when determining eligibility based on income.  A family includes all members of a household living together who are blood-related or related by marriage or adoption, whereas a household includes all persons living together regardless of their relationship.  When determining an applicant income level, all the incomes from all persons living together regardless of their relationship must be included.
