    Default Regional Application dept classification

    Is there a population number per square mile that would keep aregional grant as Rural instead of suburban.

    Example:

    Population 200,000
    Square miles served 2000 = 100 persons per square mile

    Population 200000
    sq miles 9000 = 23 persons per sq mile

    even though the second example is over the mark for a rural dept classification, could the case be made to make it a rural application.

    This would mean the difference to the host in funding 20% as apposed to 5%

    The cost share has nothing to do with rural or suburban classification. It is based on the population with the region the grant will affect.

    See page 59 of the Grant Guidance

    Also see page 17 for an explanation of classification's

    What makes an area rural / suburban / urban has to do with the amount of land that is residential / commercial / etc.

    This is not exactly true. Population per sq/mile is part of the calculation.

    Thanks
