DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 100.4% of the existing operating budget. It represents 88.9% of the total request ($8,945,682) for this program. The increase in general fund is the result of transferring the administration of the Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youngters (HIPPY) from the Office of Lifelong Learning to this program; the reduction in the administrative budget for the Church-based Tutorial Network and transfer to the flow-thru component of this program; and the addition of salaries and associated positions to reflect the departmental reorganization. The increase in other means of financing primarily reflects adjustments in federal funding for increases in the Title 4 and Food and Nutrition administrative grants and the subsequent transfer of the Title 4 Drug Free Schools program to the Regional Service Centers.
