Section 122(a)(2) of the Act requires that adjustments in the amounts of State allotments shall be made not more often than annually and that States must be notified no less than six (6) months before the beginning of the fiscal year in which such adjustment is to take effect. The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number is 93.630. In relation to the State Developmental Disabilities Council allotments, the descriptions of service needs were reviewed in the State plans and are consistent with the results obtained from the data elements and projected formula amounts for each State (Section 122(a)(5)).
The Administration on Developmental Disabilities has updated the following data elements for issuance of Fiscal Year 2004 allotments for both of the Developmental Disabilities formula grant programs.
A. The number of beneficiaries in each State and Territory under the Childhood Disabilities Beneficiary Program are from Table 5.J10 of the “Annual Statistical Supplement, 2001, to the Social Security Bulletin” issued by the Social Security Administration;
B. State data on Average Per Capita Income are from Table B—Per Capita Personal Income, 1999-2001 of the “Survey of Current Business,” October, 2002, issued by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce. The most recent comparable data for the Territories were obtained from the Department of Commerce September 2002; and
C. State data on Total Population is based on “State Population Estimates: July 1, 2001” issued December 2002 by the Bureau of the Census, U.S. Department of Commerce. The Working Population (ages 18-64) is based on 2000 Census from the “Estimate of Resident Population of the U.S. by Selected Age Groups and Sex,” issued by the Bureau of the Census. Total population estimates for the Territories are also based on 2000 Census data issued by the Bureau of Census. The Territories working population was issued in the Bureau of Census report, “General Characteristics Report: 1980,” which is the most recent data available from the Bureau.
