Notes

  1. This is a capped entitlement program and the annual funding is automatically fixed by law. The Final FY 2006 amount reflects total spending, which includes allotments unspent after 3 years, as well as a one-time addition of $283 million appropriated through the DRA, in addition to the fixed appropriation amount of $4,082 designated by the 1997 Balanced Budget Act. The FY 2007 Administration's Request reflects the President's budget proposal to modify redistribution of funds to address FY 2007 shortfalls.

  2. This $40 million in mandatory funding was included in the Deficit Reduction Act adopted in February 2006. It reduced funding in Title IV-E foster care and adoption assistance but designated an additional $40 million in 2006 for PSSF. The program needs to be reauthorized. The Administration has proposed allocating the $40 million in the same way and for the same purposes as current PSSF funding. The Senate bill designates the $40 million for competitive grants to address the impact of methamphetamines on child welfare. The House bill designates the $40 million for all 50 states but only if states meet certain foster care home visit requirements.

  3. Because this is an entitlement program, its annual funding is automatically set at the level required to fund the services authorized for eligible persons. Statutory changes in eligibility or benefit levels, as well as changes in the number of eligible persons participating, affect federal outlays.

  4. Funds from this program are drawn from the overall appropriations for Section 8 low-income rental assistance.

  5. The Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) received a one-time increase of $550 million designated for the hurricane-stricken areas of the country. In addition to uses allowed under SSBG, funds may also be used for health services including mental health and for renovation/construction of health facilities.
