DIFFERENCE (TOTAL RECOMMENDED AND EXISTING OPERATING BUDGET)

The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 139.1% of the existing operating budget. It represents 61.4% of the total request ($ 2,706,561) for this program. The changes are primarily due to an attrition adjustment offset by the annualization of partly funded positions and supplies associated with the Welding Pool Program and an increase in Interagency Transfers from Jobs Training Partnership Act Title III and Adult Basic Education grants.
