VIP Series 13-02
April 12, 2013

The VIP Series
focuses on federal grant-in-aid programs in the FFIS database that are of most importance to states. While FFIS tracks more than 200 grant-in-aid programs, the lion’s share of federal aid, almost 70% of total funding tracked by FFIS, is reported here.

This edition of The VIP Series estimates the impact of the president’s proposed budget for federal fiscal year (FY) 2014, which was released on April 10, 2013. It also includes estimates for previous years, including FY 2013, for which the numbers reported here reflect final appropriations and the impact of the budget sequestration process mandated by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA; P.L. 112-25), which took effect on March 1, 2013.
