CTCDD: AR2003 How DD Dollars were Spent


The CT Council on Developmental Disabilities operates entirely with federal developmental disabilities funds, which are distributed among the states under a formula based on population, per capita income, unemployment rate, and Social Security disability statistics. In 2003, the Council received an allotment of $650,630. The Council also carried over $7,446 of 2002 funds for use during 2002. In July 2003, the Council and the State Department of Education (SDE) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) that transferred $10,000 of SDE funds to the Council for Kids As Self-Advocates (KASA). The Council used $4,318 of these funds during 2003. The Council's total 2003 budget was $662,394. Including funds from SDE, the Council leveraged an additional $142,710 in matching funds.
