See How Federal Grants Support SBS in FY 2021
Federal Funding: All
DSS’s FY21 Adopted Budget is more than $180 million, of which 26.5 percent ($47.8 million) comes from the federal government through seventeen individual grants. Of those, just three federal grants account for more than 80 percent of SBS’s federal grants.
Federal Funding: By Program Area
SBS’s budget is divided into eleven program areas. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Workforce Development— which supports administration, program management, and design of workforce development services — relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($30 million) and relies on the largest share of federal grants (43 percent).
