This chapter of the Green Book includes a Congressional Research Service (CRS) Report on the SSBG (CRS Report 94-953). One section identifies Tables and Figures included in this report, while a separate section provides Additional Tables and Figures that present historical and the most recent available (FY2009) data on SSBG expenditures by state and service category. A Legislative History of the SSBG is provided in the next section, including a description of earlier efforts by the federal government to support state spending on social services. Finally, this chapter concludes with Links to Additional Resources, including SSBG administrative data published by HHS.

The House Ways and Means Committee is making available selected reports by the Congressional Research Service (CRS) for inclusion in its 2012 Green Book website. CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to Committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation.
By FY1981, the entitlement ceiling for the title XX social services program was $2.9 billion. An additional $16.1 million was available apart from title XX for social services expenditures by the territories, and $75 million was available to the states for staff training costs related to title XX activities, bringing the total for all federal social services expenditures to $2.991 billion. Under P.L. 96-272, enacted in 1980, the title XX entitlement ceiling was scheduled to increase to $3.3 billion in FY1985.
OBRA 1993 (P.L. 103-66) made $1 billion available on an entitlement basis under title XX for the Secretary of HHS to make grants to States for social services in qualified empowerment zones and enterprise communities (the legislation also provided certain tax incentives for zones and communities). On December 21, 1994, President Clinton selected 105 designees to participate in this program (six urban and three rural empowerment zones, 60 urban and 30 rural enterprise communities, two supplemental empowerment zones and four enhanced enterprise communities). These funds remained available for expenditure for 10 years. The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 (P.L. 105-34) authorized a second round of enterprise zone and community designations, but no title XX funding was included for the second round. (For more information on this prior use of title XX funding for social services in empowerment zones and enterprise communities, see previous editions of the Green Book.)
In addition to annual appropriations contained in the FY2009 Omnibus, many programs also received FY2009 funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), signed into law by President Obama on February 17, 2009 (P.L. 111-5). The original Senate-passed version of this bill (H.R. 1) would have appropriated $400 million in SSBG funds, to be obligated to states within 60 calendar days from the date at which they become available for obligation. The original House-passed version of H.R. 1, meanwhile, included no funds for SSBG. Ultimately, the enacted version of this legislation adopted the House position on this and, as a result, the SSBG received no supplemental funds from the ARRA.

Unless otherwise approved by OMB, the Federal awarding agency must solicit only the OMB-approved governmentwide data elements for collection of financial information (at time of publication the Federal Financial Report or such future, OMB-approved, governmentwide data elements available from the OMB-designated standards lead. This information must be collected with the frequency required by the terms and conditions of the Federal award, but no less frequently than annually nor more frequently than quarterly except in unusual circumstances, for example where more frequent reporting is necessary for the effective monitoring of the Federal award or could significantly affect program outcomes, and preferably in coordination with performance reporting. The Federal awarding agency must use OMB-approved common information collections, as applicable, when providing financial and performance reporting information.
The Federal awarding agency or pass-through entity will close out the Federal award when it determines that all applicable administrative actions and all required work of the Federal award have been completed by the non-Federal entity. If the non-Federal entity fails to complete the requirements, the Federal awarding agency or pass-through entity will proceed to close out the Federal award with the information available. This section specifies the actions the non-Federal entity and Federal awarding agency or pass-through entity must take to complete this process at the end of the period of performance.
In addition to the basic considerations regarding the allowability of costs highlighted in this subtitle, other subtitles in this part describe special considerations and requirements applicable to states, local governments, Indian tribes, and IHEs. In addition, certain provisions among the items of cost in this subpart are only applicable to certain types of non-Federal entities, as specified in the following sections:
A conference is defined as a meeting, retreat, seminar, symposium, workshop or event whose primary purpose is the dissemination of technical information beyond the non-Federal entity and is necessary and reasonable for successful performance under the Federal award. Allowable conference costs paid by the non-Federal entity as a sponsor or host of the conference may include rental of facilities, speakers' fees, costs of meals and refreshments, local transportation, and other items incidental to such conferences unless further restricted by the terms and conditions of the Federal award. As needed, the costs of identifying, but not providing, locally available dependent-care resources are allowable. Conference hosts/sponsors must exercise discretion and judgment in ensuring that conference costs are appropriate, necessary and managed in a manner that minimizes costs to the Federal award. The Federal awarding agency may authorize exceptions where appropriate for programs including Indian tribes, children, and the elderly. See also 200.438, 200.456, and 200.475.
Explanations of the legislative process and the publications produced at different steps are available from both the Senate and House of the U.S. Congress, but my favorite source is "How a Bill Becomes a Law" from Schoolhouse Rock.
How far back the database goes with fulltext varies. Testimony at Congressional committee hearings, for example, should be almost comprehensive since 1994, and less comprehensive 1988-1993. Transcripts of discussion at hearings is selective. If the full text is not available within the database, copy and paste the document title into the library catalog to see if it is available in Andersen Library's Federal Documents collection. Older materials (especially pre 1976) may not be cataloged, so write down the SuDoc number and ask for assistance with finding it at the Reference Desk. If Andersen Library does not have a federal document, we may be able to find it online or request it from another UW library.
Status of FY 2005 Safety Funds: First, it is important to point out that the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) remains funded for the remainder of FY 2005 as before SAFETEA-LU. Specifically, the funds available to each State for infrastructure-related highway safety improvements will be based on the 10percent set-aside of Surface Transportation Program (STP) funds to carry out previously existing Sections 130 (Railway-Highway crossings) and 152 (Hazard elimination program) activities. The FHWA Office of Budget and Finance will provide data on remaining FY 2005 distributions soon.
Also available at this time is the initial PowerPoint file outlining FHWA safety elements of SAFETEA-LU. This is not attached due to size limitations; and we will have this available through the Safety Exchange so that safety staff and others in FHWA can obtain it for appropriate use. These materials can be shared with your safety partners, as you desire. We also are actively reviewing an extensive initial set of "Questions and Answers" regarding safety topics in SAFETEA-LU prepared by the Team; we expect to disseminate this material soon and will advise you and your safety staff when it is available. 041b061a72
