Please help me with map overlays

Can anyone help me with data from a Google Map?

HUD hosts this website:

The site allows you to put in an address and find out whether the property at that address is located in a "Qualified Census Tract" for Low Income Housing.

I need to check a few hundred addresses. Ideally, I could put their data on a .kml file and run a batchgeo of my addresses, noting the properties where they overlap.

Is it possible to pull their data off their site into a .kml?

I have already emailed them for help to no avail.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I don't really know for sure, but I would try to save it as a .kmz to your hard drive. KMZs are portable when KMLs are not.

It looks like the lookups are being sent to an IP address that loads a website for Sage Computing. I don't see any way to get the data from the site you linked above, and there's a contact link on the Sage page, so maybe you should explore that avenue.

You can download a zipped DBF file of the tracts here.
