Abstract:

The main argument of this paper is that variation in state level institutions and local government administrative capacity are key factors in explaining the distribution of non-entitlement Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) in states. More specifically, we argue that local government capacity is positively associated with access to non-entitlement CDBGs, and decentralized state-level allocation institutions enhance access to these intergovernmental block grants as well. This paper provides a comparative institutional analysis of the allocation of non-entitlement Community Development Block Grants across four states: Texas, California, Kentucky, and Utah. We use probit, Poisson, and Tobit models to determine whether access to non-entitlement CDBGs is a function of variance in local government capacity and state-level institutional variation. We find that from 1999-2001, state institutions influence the odds of receiving a grant and the number of grants, but not the funding levels in dollars. These findings raise important questions about whether state administration of the non-entitlement CDBG program prevents local governments most in need of federal assistance from receiving federal assistance.
