The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) recently revised its fiscal year (FY) 2015 allocations for the Social Services Block Grant (SSBG) because the initial allocations did not reflect updated population data. In addition, FFIS updated its state-by-state estimates for FY 2016 based on the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) sequestration report, which calculates a -6.8% sequestration percentage reduction for non-exempt nondefense mandatory programs in FY 2016.
