Program Expirations Timeline

Updated November 4, 2021


October 1, 2020

FY 2021 began.

The federal matching rate for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) declined due to full phase-out of an Affordable Care Act (ACA) provision (see Issue Brief 19-26).

The following programs expired:

  • Secure Rural Schools (SRS)

Because ESSA and WIOA are discretionary programs, they may still receive funding through the appropriations process. SRS requires current authorization to receive funding, although funding is paid with a one-year lag.
