Abstract: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has historically provided grant-in-aid funding to states and municipalities for the benefit of America's poorest neighborhoods. This paper evaluates the effect of policy making at the federal level from the perspective of local grant administrators who are responsible for implementing the policies and programs. The paper presents results of a national survey of grant entitlement cities in 19 U.S. states to identify local grant recipients' perceptions regarding 1)federal-local relations, 2) local program implementation, and 3) performance measurements required by HUD. Results illustrate that there are cooperative characteristics in the federal-local grant relationship.
