Factors Determining California’s Share of Federal Formula Grants, Second Edition

Tim Ransdell

This introductory report in the Federal Formula Grants and California series describes the major factors used by federal formula grant programs to allocate funds to states and describes how California’s share of programs varies by the factors employed. A companion document, published in conjunction with the first edition of this report in December 2002, illustrates California’s historical shares of various federal grant programs from 1991 through 2001. The companion report has not been updated because the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has discontinued publication of the annual source for most of the data underlying the report.
