Grants to State and Local Governments: An Overview of Federal Funding Levels and Selected Challenges
Stanley J. Czerwinski (au); Beryl H. Davis (au)
Grants, a form of federal assistance consisting of payments in cash or in kind for a specified purpose, represent an important tool for achieving national objectives. They vary greatly, including in the types of programs they fund, the methods they use to allocate funds to recipients, and the amount of discretion they give to the grant recipient on how the funds are spent. The Office of Mngt. and Budget (OMB) has estimated that grants to state and local governments represent roughly 80% of all federal grant funding, with the balance going to recipients such as nonprofit organizations, research institutions, or individuals. In a time of fiscal constraint, continuing to support the current scope and breadth of federal grants to state and local governments will be a challenge. This report (1) provides information regarding the amount of grant funding to state and local governments for FY 2011, how such funding has changed over the last three decades, and difficulties related to identifying the exact number of such grant programs; and (2) identifies selected grants management challenges that have been identified over the last several years.
