Notes

  1. This is a capped entitlement program and the annual funding is automatically fixed by law.
  2. The $40 million available for this workforce initiative is a carry-over of FY 2006 funds. No FY 2007 funds were provided since states are allowed to spend the $40 million in FY 2006 funds through 2009.
  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 Tenant Protection Program.
  5. Funds within the Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention accounts were proposed to be combined and transferred to a new flexible grant program, the Child Safety and Juvenile Justice Grant Program. Congress rejected this proposal.
  6. Congress passed two bills (H.R. 976 and H.R. 3963) that would have reauthorized SCHIP for five years with additional funding to insure more children, but both bills were vetoed by the Administration. As a result, SCHIP was extended through March 31, 2009 by S. 2499, which provides $5 billion for SCHIP during FY 2008, plus such sums as may be necessary (up to $1.6 billion) to avoid shortfalls during FY 2008.
