What is a Disadvantaged Unincorporated Community (DUC)?
The State defines a DUC as an area of inhabited territory located within an unincorporated area of a County in which the annual median income household is less than 80 percent of the statewide median income.
Due to aging infrastructure and lack of investment within DUCs, public services (e.g., water, sewer, fire protection, etc.) to these areas are sometimes provided at levels below the service levels of adjacent and surrounding cities.
