Similarly, VA can determine spending levels in rural areas for its grant and
per diem program using self-reported data. Table 3 shows funding and the
number of beds based on this designation for fiscal years 2007-2009. In
fiscal year 2009, according to VA data, 13.5 percent of capital grant awards
under the Grant and Per Diem program funding went to rural areas, which
represented 8.5 percent of the funded beds. HUD's ESG program targets 30
percent of its funding toward nonentitlement cities or counties, which
represent more rural areas. However, according to HUD, ESG provides
discretion to the state entity to decide how to allocate ESG funds. A state
may limit funds to nonentitlement areas and metropolitan cities and urban
counties that did not receive individual allocations, or may choose to fund
entitlement cities and counties that received direct allocations from HUD.
