Other Contract funding is contingent upon appropriation in the annual Budget Act. Previously, CDE has been appropriated $12,000,000.00 per fiscal year (FY). The money is appropriated for entire fiscal years; therefore, the entire fiscal year funding is not available for this contract in 2008-09 (maximum of $2,168,000.00), FY 2009-10 (maximum of $11,673,000.00), FY 2010-11 (maximum of $12,110,000.00), FY 2011-12 (maximum of $1,000,000.00), and FY 2012-13 (maximum of $1,000,000.00) due to the overlapping of contracts.
