Challenges of Bottom-Up Implementation: The Community Development Block Grant and the Government Performance and Results Act
Author: DONNA MILAM HANDLEY
Published in PAM, Vol. 12 No. 4
Urban communities across the nation are often challenged by the complexities involved in managing their intergovernmental funds. Over the last decade, increased pressures to enhance performance measurements have compounded these problems for cities. This study incorporates the case of the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program to highlight the difficulties with federal programs that are implemented at the local government level. Despite threats to the program in recent years due to ineffective performance measurements, the case of CDBG demonstrates the potential for strengthened intergovernmental partnerships.
