BACKGROUND

Prior to the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconcilation Act (PRWORA), section 403(k) of the Social Security Act specified the total amount of Federal funding available annually for the JOBS program under title IV-F. The amount available to each State (the JOBS allocation or "limit of entitlement") was composed of two portions. The first portion was equal to the amount a State received for its Work Incentive (WIN) program or WIN demonstration program for 1987. The second portion was based on each State's average monthly number of AFDC adult recipients from the prior fiscal year. Indian Tribes and Alaska Native Organizations may also operate JOBS programs and receive grants directly from the Administration for Children and Families for this purpose. Their allocation is deducted from the State's total allocation for the JOBS program.

States were required to submit quarterly reports of their expenditures on Form ACF-33 1. JOBS funds allocated to a State for a given fiscal year were for use during that fiscal year and must be obligated by the State no later than the end of the fiscal year. Carry forward of an unobligated balance of Federal funds to a succeeding Federal fiscal year was not permitted. An unobligated Federal fund balance at the close of a Federal fiscal year was returned to the Federal government through the issuance of a negative grant amount following receipt of the final quarterly expenditure report for the fiscal year.

A State had to liquidate all obligations incurred under the title IV-F grant awards not later than one year after the end of the fiscal year for which the funds were awarded, after which the Federal share of unliquidated obligations would be returned to the Federal Government.

 

OVERVIEW

Consistent with the Social Security Act, the amount available to States declined from $1.29 billion to $.99 billion. Thus, while State grant amounts also decreased from $1.04 billion to $.87 billion, the proportion of the amount available increased from 80.7 to 87.8 percent. In addition, in FY '96, 37 jurisdictions received their full allocation compared to 16 in FY '95.

Tables

These two attachments provide a State by State summary of allocations, amounts received by the States, and percent of allocation received for FY 1995 and FY 1996. The following explains each column:

Column A: ALLOCATION. The State's revised allocation after deducting the allocation for its Indian Tribes and/or Alaska Native Organizations.

Column B: GRANT AMOUNT. The total portion of the allocation received by the State.

Column C: BALANCE. The difference between the ALLOCATION and the GRANT AMOUNT.

Column D: PERCENT OF ALLOCATION RECEIVED. The GRANT AMOUNT divided by the ALLOCATION.
