post katrina limitations
Post- Katrina Limitations
  • State plans are very general, and only include broad target areas for federal block grant allocations versus specific awardees and amounts.
  • Local funders do not all keep track of awards by specific subject areas/target population. One funder included early childhood grants in total, while another had everything generally categorized as “education.”
federal budget trends
Federal Budget Trends
  • Federal spending on children has declined in recent decades, from 20% of the federal domestic spending in 1960 to 15% of the federal domestic spending 2006.
  • Almost all children’s programs are discretionary, and will continue to lose out to entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security.
  • Children’s programs primarily target low-income families, so benefits disappear when income increases.
