Data as of: 21-AUG-2019

Notes applicable to this report:

  1. The source for this table is ACF-801 data for FY 2018.
  2. All percentages are based on "adjusted" numbers of families and children, unless otherwise indicated. These "adjusted" numbers represent the number funded through CCDF only (which includes Federal Discretionary, Mandatory, and Matching Funds; TANF transfers to CCDF; and State Matching and Maintenance of Effort Funds). The "adjusted" number is the raw or "unadjusted" number reported by the State multiplied by its pooling factor, as reported on the ACF-800. This report takes this factor into consideration in calculating the "adjusted" numbers or percentages.
  3. All States provide an actual unadjusted count of families served each month. For States reporting full population data, the number of child records reported each month was directly counted.  However, for States that only submit samples, the ratio of children-to-families was determined each month from the samples and then multiplied by the reported number of families to obtain an estimate of the unadjusted number of children served each month. The unadjusted average number of families and children was obtained from the monthly numbers in the FY, as reported on the ACF-801 summary (header) record.  
  4. A "0%" indication often means the value is less than 0.5% rather than actually zero. In a few instances, the sum of the categories may not appear to add up to exactly 100% because of rounding.
  5. At the time of publication, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and Virgin Islands had not yet reported any ACF-801 data for FY 2018. Arkansas, Guam, and Louisiana had submitted 11 months, and North Carolina had  submitted 1 month. All other States and Territories had submitted the full 12 months of data. 
  6. The Invalid/Not Reported column only includes family records with an invalid or missing number for ACF-801 element 16a, Family Homeless Status.
  7. Agencies must use the term homeless as defined in section 725 of subtitle VII-B of the McKinney-Vento Act.  The term "homeless children and youths" refers to individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and includes the following four categories:
    1. Children and youth who:
      1. share the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason;
      2. are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative accommodations;
      3. are living in emergency or transitional shelters; or
      4. are abandoned in hospitals.
    2. Children and youth who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings.
    3. Children and youth who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings.
    4. Children of migrant or seasonal workers who qualify as homeless because they are living in circumstances described in the first three categories. 
  8. "-" indicates data not reported.
