Social Services Block Grant and Sequestration
Sequester cuts have reduced FY 2013 allocations for the Social
Services Block Grant from $1.7 billion to $1.613 billion. Since the first two
FY 2013 allocations were issued before sequestration took effect, the full cut
will be absorbed in the second half of the fiscal year and will result in an
approximate 10 percent funding cut. Social Services Block Grant allocations are
used to fund many important programs for older Americans, including Adult
Protective Services. See the impact of sequester on your state.
