Rates and Payments

Federal funding for the CBCAP grant program is appropriated annually.  Funds are allotted proportionately among States based on the number of children under age 18 residing in each state.  Annual grants depend on the availability of federal funding appropriated for the program, “except that no State shall receive less than $175,000”.  For Iowa Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2013 funds under the CBCAP program was $246,845. In addition to the yearly federal amount allocated each State is required to include in their grant application a budget for the development, operation and expansion of the CBCAP program.  States must expend in non-Federal funds an amount equal to, but not less than, 20% of the federal amount received.
