ACS Federal Funding: All

ACS’s FY21 Adopted Budget is nearly $2.7 billion, of which 39 percent ($1.0 billion) comes from the federal government through 15 individual grants. Of those, just four federal grants account for more than 80 percent of ACS’s federal grants.

ACS Federal Funding: By Program Area

ACS’s budget is divided into sixteen program areas, also known as budget functions. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Child Care Services — which supports funding for childcare programs to low-income working families — relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($366 million), while Preventive Homemaking Services— which supports preventive services focusing on household and child rearing skills to help families manage independently — relies on the largest share of federal grants (78 percent).
