(Some figures are rounded.)

Notes:

(1) The 2011 education budget request – at nearly $50 billion or $3.5 billion more than fiscal 2010 – was structured to reflect the administration’s priorities for reauthorization of No Child Left Behind. The request emphasizes competitive programming designed to encourage education reform. The request would also consolidate nearly 40 programs into 11 broad accounts. The figures marked “N/A” in the chart reflect programs that would be consolidated, meaning the administration would have the program continue to some extent but has not proposed a specific amount to spend on it.

(2) Previous funding for Race to the Top and Investing in Innovation was provided in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, not in regular spending bills.

(3)  The administration again is asking that Pell Grants be made an entitlement and pegged to the rate of inflation. Under the appropriation, the grants, currently $5,550 would rise to $5,710 in 2011.

(4) The administration assumes for both 2010 and 2011 that mandatory funding of $124 million for states to run evidence-based home visitation models will pass as part of health care reform. This would be combined with a request for $13.5 million in discretionary funds under the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act account.

(5) The SCHIP reauthorization law enacted in February 2009 provided $44 billion over five years to expand children’s health insurance coverage.

(6) This account supports a variety of programs, including adult and juvenile re-entry services, re-entry courts, family-based programs for incarcerated parents of minor children, and offender re-entry substance abuse and criminal justice collaboration.

(7) This line would include $45 million for drug courts, the same appropriation as 2010, plus add $12 million for mental health courts.

(8) For a website on the latest developments in evidence-based and promising programs for the criminal and juvenile offender communities.

(9) National Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) was funded through the U.S. Department of Justice in fiscal 2010 rather than the Violence Against Women Act account, an adjustment from 2009.

(10) The 2011 budget would direct 15 percent of the total to a Youth Innovation Fund to pilot models for delivering summer and year-round work experiences and comprehensive services to disconnected youth.
