Last week, the Department of Interior issued a
press release touting the allocation of $37.4 million in LWCF State Assistance
grants. This announcement was for Fiscal Year 11 (FY11) which spans from
Oct. 1, 2010 through Sept. 30, 2011. Unfortunately, without the support of State
Assistance advocates we may not see the same level of funding in FY12. In
fact, funding for the State Assistance program for FY12 (Oct. 1, 2011 - Sept.
30, 2011) is in danger of being eliminated.
