Dear Colleague Letter

Re: FY 2016 3rd Quarter Allocations Update

Date: April 1, 2016

Dear Colleagues:

The purpose of this message is to provide you with an update on the third quarter allocations of the Community Services Block Grant (CSBG) funds for fiscal year (FY) 2016.  These awards represent the third release of funding to date for FY 2016.  Third quarter CSBG award letters also include a full-year allocation amount that reflects the increased appropriation level for FY 2016.  A chart is attached to show the full-year CSBG allocations along with the total amount allocated and released for the first, second, and third quarters of FY 2016.

As noted in prior correspondence, Congress appropriated these funds under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016 (Public Law 114-113), which provided the final budget for FY 2016 and which the President signed into law on December 18, 2015.  A link to the law can be found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/2029/text Visit disclaimer page .

Please note that although full year allocation amounts have been provided, up to 1% of the total funding for FY 2016 remains subject to potential reallocation based on the Secretary’s authority to transfer funding within HHS’s discretionary accounts.  Any reductions to the total grant allocation for FY 2016 would be reflected in the fourth quarter grant award.

Thank you for your continued partnership and cooperation with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and Administration for Children and Families (ACF).
