Priority Funding Areas
Revised Date: October 2007

Decennial Census demographic and socioeconomic profile reports from 1990 and 2000 for Priority Funding Areas (PFAs) boundaries as they existed in 2001* and include PFA Comment Areas. PFA Comment Areas are certified by the county as part of their Priority Funding Areas but do not meet the criteria in the 1997 Law for PFAs.
