Fiscal Detail and Notes
Requiring 20% of Federal Block Grant funds be set aside for the most vulnerable communities and 10% be set aside for Indian nations, tribes and bands limits the amount of funding available for the purposes for which they are currently being used. If the remaining 70% of Federal Block Grant funds are not sufficient to accomplish those purposes, or the purposes and programs are not modified to acccount for a reduction in expenditures, General Fund appropriations may be needed to supplement the federal resources.
