DFTA Federal Funding: All

DFTA’s FY21 Adopted Budget is more than $412 million, of which 18 percent ($74 million) comes from the federal government through fourteen individual grants. Of those, just four federal grants account for more than 80 percent of DFTA’s federal grants.

DFTA Federal Funding: By Program Area

DFTA’s budget is divided into six program areas. Each program area relies on a mix of funding sources and is uniquely vulnerable to budget cuts. For example, Senior Centers and Meals — which supports home delivered meals and senior centers for educational, nutrition and health, and recreational programs in a community-based setting — relies on the largest sum of federal grants ($54 million), while Senior Employment and Benefits — which supports subsidized jobs and benefit assistance, including health insurance and home-energy costs — relies on the largest share of federal grants (81 percent).
