1. Question: If States have utilized other Federal sources of funds (e.g., Title XX), under the former ILP, can Chafee funds be used to replace them?

Answer: According to section 477(d)(2), States may not supplant any funds (i.e., Federal and non-Federal) that are available for the same general purposes in the State. Chafee funds are to supplement the funds which were used for the general purposes described at sections 477(a)(1-5). States may shift funds or change priorities within the general purposes of the Chafee legislation.
