Program Instructions

AOA-PI-99-03

TO : STATES ADMINISTERING PLANS UNDER TITLE III OF THE OLDER AMERICANS ACT OF 1965, AS AMENDED

SUBJECT : Reallotment Procedure for 1999 Title III Formula Grant Funds

LEGAL AND RELATED REFERENCES : Section 304(b) of the Older Americans Act of 1965, As Amended

The purpose of this program instruction is to provide guidance for state agencies to notify the Administration on Aging (AoA) of: 1) the amount, if any, of fiscal year (FY) 1999 Title III funds which states will not use by September 30, 1999, and will release for reallotment; and 2) the request for additional Title III funds which could be obligated by the state agencies in FY 1999 and FY 2000. As you know, Title III funds, which are made available through reallotment, are available for obligation by state agencies during the following fiscal year in which funds were appropriated.

Release of Funds

State agencies not intending to use the full amount of their Title III allotments should submit a statement signed by the authorized state agency official releasing Title III funds for reallotment. This statement must identify from which allotment the funds are being released. If a state releases funds for reallotment, a revised grant award will be issued reflecting the decrease.

Request for Funds

If additional funds can be utilized, state agencies should submit a brief statement requesting additional funds signed by the appropriate state agency official.

DUE DATE:

INQUIRIES: Inquiries should be addressed to Regional Administrators on Aging, DHHS regional offices.
