The following steps can be used to calculate an eligible community’s MOG allocation:
1. Multiply the Remoteness Index assigned to the community by the number of occupied households in that community:
(Remoteness Index) x (# households) = Result of Step 1
2. Do the same calculation above for all other communities with a population under 11,000 and add them together:
(Calculation from step 1 for the 1st of 276 communities) + (Calculation from step 1 for the 2nd of the 276 communities)……+ (Calculation from step 1 for the last of the 276 communities) = Results of Step 2
3. Divide the results of Step 1 by the results of Step 2:
(Result of Step 1) / (Result of Step 2) = Step 3 Percentage
4. Multiply the community’s calculated percentage from Step 3 by the total budget allocation in that year:
(Step 3 Percentage) x (Program Budget) = Community Allocation
