The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) was established as a Federal-State partnership in 1965 to invest in sustainable economic development in the 420 county Appalachian Region. The Commission is comprised of 13 members representing the States in the Region and a Federal Co-Chairman, who represents the Federal Government. It is the mission of the ARC to help the Appalachian Region reach parity with the Nation by planning and coordinating regional investments and targeting resources to those communities with the greatest needs. ARC investments go toward area development and technical assistance goals, such as increasing job opportunities, improving employability, strengthening basic infrastructure and building the Appalachian Development Highway System. ARC also assists communities through support of 73 multi-county Local Development Districts (LDDs) that assist local governments in implementing economic development strategies. In 2015, ARC will devote $10 million to work with partner agencies on the Administration's Appalachian Regional Development Initiative to promote diversified and sustainable economic growth and employment in the Region.

Salaries and expenses._In this Federal-State partnership, the Federal Government contributes half of the expenses of a professional staff that works with the States and the Federal staff in operating the program. The other half of these non-Federal employee expenses are provided by member States.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was established under Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Act) (P.L. 111–203) as an independent bureau in the Federal Reserve System. To create a single point of accountability in the Federal government for consumer financial protection, the Act consolidated authorities previously shared by seven Federal agencies under Federal consumer financial laws into the CFPB and provided the Bureau with additional authorities to:

—Conduct rulemaking, supervision, and enforcement with respect to Federal consumer financial laws;

—Handle consumer complaints and inquiries about financial products;

—Promote financial education, literacy, and access;

—Research consumer behavior; and,

—Monitor financial markets for new risks to consumers.

Funding required to support the CFPB's operations is obtained primarily through transfers from the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. Transfers to the Bureau in 2014 are capped at $608.3 million. The transfer cap for 2015, as adjusted by an annual inflation indicator, is estimated to be $618.7 million. The Bureau anticipates requesting less than the transfer cap to fund operations in 2014 and 2015 and the Budget reflects estimates of $570 and $583 million, respectively.

Pursuant to the Act, the CFPB is also authorized to collect civil penalties in any judicial or administrative action under Federal consumer financial laws. These fees are maintained and displayed in a separate account titled "Consumer Financial Civil Penalty Fund."

For further discussion of the CFPB's activities, see the chapter on Financial Stabilization Efforts in the Analytical Perspectives volume of the Budget.

Pursuant to Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Act) (P.L. 111–203), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is authorized to collect civil penalties obtained in any judicial or administrative action under Federal consumer financial laws. Per the Act, such funds will be available for payments to the victims of activities for which civil penalties have been imposed under the Federal consumer financial laws. To the extent that such victims cannot be located or payments are otherwise not practicable, the CFPB may use such funds for consumer education and financial literacy programs. In May 2013, the CFPB published a final rule to provide transparency about how money in the Civil Penalty Fund would be used to compensate victims and the circumstances in which the funds may be allocated for consumer education and financial literacy programs. In Fiscal Year 2013, the CFPB made its first allocations of funds from the Civil Penalty Fund to victims and to consumer education and financial literacy programs. In Fiscal Year 2014, the CFPB began distributing the allocated funds to victims.

The Civilian Property Realignment Board, as envisioned by the Administration's Civilian Property Realignment Act proposal, is an independent agency that assists the President and Congress in identifying ways the Government can eliminate unneeded assets and downsize its real property inventory. This independent structure, which was modeled off of the successful Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) process, would enable the Federal Government to cut through the challenging competing stakeholder interests that slow the disposal and consolidation of unneeded properties. Though the Federal Government has made real progress on reforming the management of its real property, through actions such as holding agencies to a 730.2 million total office and warehouse square footage baseline under the "Freeze the Footprint" policy and developing performance metrics to identify opportunities for consolidation in the Federal real estate inventory, this independent Board would allow us to achieve long-desired opportunities for reform and deficit reduction within the inventory with far greater scope, speed, and efficiency. The goals of the Board would be to sell unneeded property, reduce the operating costs of the Government, support and incentivize agency co-location, resolve the Government's reliance on costly leases, and improve the sustainability of the Government's operations.

The Civilian Property Realignment Board, as envisioned by the Administration's Civilian Property Realignment Act proposal, will utilize a revolving fund (the Asset Proceeds and Space Management Fund) to facilitate the disposal process by serving as a source of resources to reimburse an agency for some necessary costs associated with disposing of property. Through this fund, the Board may provide, upon approval of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, logistical and financial support to agencies in their efforts to prepare properties for disposal, consolidation, co-location, or other reconfiguration. The appropriation in the amount of $40,000,000 will supply initial capital to fund this role of the Board. Thereafter, at least sixty percent of net proceeds received from the sale of any property implemented as a result of a Board recommendation shall be sent directly to the General Fund of the Treasury. In a proportion decided by the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the remaining forty percent will be used to replenish this Asset Proceeds and Space Management fund and for the purpose of investments in agency real property management. The retention of agency proceeds by the Board's revolving fund will allow the Board to continue its role to provide logistical and financial support to agencies implementing Board recommendations, as well as fund the Board's own operations, reducing the need for future appropriated funds.

Originally established by the Civil Rights Act of 1957, the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR) is an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding Federal agency. Its mission is to inform the development of national civil rights policy and enhance enforcement of Federal civil rights laws. The Commission pursues this mission by studying alleged deprivations of voting rights and alleged discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin, or in the administration of justice. The Commission plays a vital role in advancing civil rights through objective and comprehensive investigation, research, and analysis on issues of fundamental concern to the Federal government and the public. The Commission also supports a network of State Advisory Committees, each composed of a diverse group of citizen volunteers, which conduct civil rights research at the State and regional levels.

The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (operating as the U.S. AbilityOne Commission) administers the AbilityOne Program under the authority of the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act of 1971, as amended. The principal objective of AbilityOne is to leverage the purchasing power of the Federal Government to provide employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities. The Committee accomplishes its mission by identifying Government procurement requirements that can create employment opportunities for individuals who are blind or have other significant disabilities. Following opportunities for public comment and after due deliberation, the Committee then places such products and service requirements on the AbilityOne Procurement List, thus requiring Federal departments and agencies to procure the designated products and services from a network of just below 600 qualified State and private nonprofit agencies (NPAs) employing people who are blind or have other significant disabilities.

The long-term vision of AbilityOne is to enable people who are blind or have other significant disabilities to achieve their maximum employment potential. In 2013, nearly 48,000 AbilityOne employees earned a combined total of more than $550 million in wages, with an average hourly wage of $12.09. As a result, many individuals were able to reduce their dependence on Social Security, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and other public income transfer payments.

AbilityOne continues to emphasize providing employment to veterans, with more than 3,000 employed in direct or indirect labor positions, including supervision and management. To meet the changing needs of the Federal Government and employment interests of people who are blind or have other significant disabilities, AbilityOne has opened new lines of business in areas such as contract management services, automotive fleet management, document destruction services, and secure mail facility management. In addition to pursuing these initiatives, AbilityOne has expanded the range of unique military products and services it has traditionally provided to meet the needs of the Nation's war fighters. The resources proposed for 2015 would enable the Committee to continue increasing employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities while providing Federal departments and agencies with high quality products and services to support their missions.

The mission of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC or Commission) is to protect market users, consumers and the public at large from fraud, manipulation, and other abusive practices, and systemic risk related to derivatives that are subject to the Commodity Exchange Act (CEA or the Act) and to foster open, transparent, competitive, and financially sound markets. Congress established the CFTC as an independent agency in 1974. The CFTC administers the Act, 7 U.S.C. Section 1, et. seq. The Act established a comprehensive regulatory structure to oversee the volatile futures trading complex, including futures trading in all goods, articles, services, rights and interests; commodity options trading; and leverage trading in gold and silver bullion and coins.

To meet changing market conditions, CFTC's mandate has been renewed and expanded several times since its inception. Most recently, and in response to the 2008 financial crisis, the scope of CFTC's mission grew dramatically in 2010 by the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank Act) (P.L. 111–203), which amended the CEA and expanded CFTC's mission to include oversight of the previously unregulated over-the-counter (OTC) swaps marketplace.

The markets under CFTC's regulatory purview are large and economically significant. The CFTC regulates futures and options markets of an estimated $34 trillion notional value in the United States; and with the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, the CFTC is tasked with regulating the swaps markets with an estimated notional value of over $240 trillion in the United States.

In FY 2015, the Administration is requesting a total of $280 million and 920 FTE to support Dodd-Frank Act sustaining activities, including $50 million for information technology spending. The allocation of these resources will be adjusted among the mission activities to reflect the transition from Dodd-Frank Act start-up activities to sustaining activities in 2015. The Commission will be well positioned to build its operational capabilities, evaluate changes in the industry as it responds to the new Dodd-Frank Act regulatory framework, and address any unanticipated issues that will naturally arise in implementing the regulatory reforms called for under the Dodd-Frank Act. The bulk of the information technology investment will support the Commissions surveillance programs, including continued integration of swap data repository and derivative clearing organization data, integration of tools used by the self-regulatory organizations, reduced latency for processing market data and increasing the number of entities providing order message data.

The Administration strongly supports and plans to propose legislation authorizing fees to fully fund the CFTC through user fees assessed on the sale of commodity futures, options, and swaps contracts. Authorization of fees would bring the CFTC into line with nearly all other Federal financial regulators, which are funded in whole or in part through user fees. This fee will shift CFTC's costs from the general taxpayer to the primary beneficiaries of CFTC's oversight and will be set at a level to avoid inhibiting the market's competitiveness. The Administration expects the CFTC to begin collecting fees in FY 2016 subject to enactment of authorizing legislation permitting the CFTC to collect user fees.

Section 748 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the Act) (P.L. 111–203) amended the Commodity Exchange Act to direct the Commission to issue rules implementing incentives and protections for whistleblowers. Specifically, section 748 requires the Commission to pay awards to whistleblowers who provide original information to the Commission that leads to successful enforcement of a Commission action resulting in monetary sanctions exceeding $1,000,000, and who satisfy other eligibility requirements. The amount of the awards, as determined by the Commission, will be between 10 to 30 percent of sanctions collected in either the Commission's action or a related action that is based upon original information provided by the whistleblower.

The Commission's award determination is dependent upon certain criteria. The Commission may exercise discretion in granting an award based upon the significance of the information, the degree of assistance provided in support of the Commission's action or related action, the Commission's programmatic interest, and other criteria. An award shall be denied to certain Government employees and others who are statutorily ineligible.

A whistleblower may appeal the Commission's award determination as to whom an award is made, the amount of an award, or the denial of an award, to the appropriate U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Customer Protection Fund is a revolving fund established under section 748 of the Act. The Commission shall deposit civil monetary penalties, disgorgements, and interest it collects in covered administrative or judicial enforcement actions into the Fund whenever the balance in the Fund at the time of the deposit is less than or equal to $100,000,000. The Commission will not deposit restitution awarded to victims into the Fund, and will pay whistleblower awards and finance customer education initiatives from the Fund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is an independent federal regulatory agency, created in 1972 by the Consumer Product Safety Act (CPSA). In addition to the CPSA, as amended by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), and Public Law 112–28, the CPSC also administers other laws, including the Federal Hazardous Substances Act, the Flammable Fabrics Act, the Child Safety Protection Act, the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, the Refrigerator Safety Act, the Virginia Graeme Baker (VGB) Pool and Spa Safety Act, and the Children's Gasoline Burn Prevention Act. The 2015 resource request begins scaling the CPSC's import surveillance initiative to a full-scale national program in FY 2015 and proposes that an import surveillance user fee be enacted in FY 2015 with collections beginning by FY 2016 to offset costs of the program. The 2015 request also supports the proactive global outreach and education agenda along with analytical work to study and identify potential consumer product hazards.

The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) provides opportunities for Americans of all ages to serve their community and country in sustained and effective ways. Established in 1993, CNCS engages more than five million Americans in service, and leads President Obama's national call to service initiative, United We Serve.

As the nation's largest grantmaker for service and volunteering, CNCS plays a critical role in strengthening America's nonprofit sector and addressing our nation's challenges through service. CNCS harnesses America's most powerful resource—the energy and talents of its citizens—to solve problems and strengthen communities. From grade school through retirement, CNCS empowers Americans and fosters a lifetime of service.

CNCS plays a vital role in supporting the American culture of citizenship, service and responsibility. CNCS promotes service around the country, working hand in hand with thousands of local partners. These institutions include: nonprofits, schools, faith-based and other community organizations, and local governments.

AmeriCorps State and National._With funds channeled through States, Territories, Tribes, and community-based organizations, AmeriCorps grants enable communities to recruit, train, and place AmeriCorps members to meet critical local needs in the areas of disaster services, economic opportunity, education, environmental stewardship, healthy futures, and veterans and military families, as directed by the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act of 2009.

AmeriCorps Foster Grandparent Program._Grants provide low-income members age 55 and older with service opportunities to provide one-on-one mentoring and support to at-risk children. To maximize impact and efficiency, existing Foster Grandparent Program grantees will become AmeriCorps grantees under this Budget. Foster Grandparents will become AmeriCorps members and be eligible for a special Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.

AmeriCorps Senior Companion Program._AmeriCorps Senior Companions provide companionship, transportation, help with light chores, and respite to assist tens of thousands of seniors and people with disabilities to remain in their own homes. To maximize impact and efficiency, existing Senior Companion Program grantees will become AmeriCorps grantees under this Budget. Senior Companions will become AmeriCorps members and be eligible for a special Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.

AmeriCorps National Civilian Community Corps._AmeriCorps NCCC is a 10-month residential national service program for people ages 18–24. AmeriCorps NCCC members will be deployed to respond to natural disasters and engage in urban and rural development projects across the nation.

AmeriCorps VISTA._Provides full-time members to community organizations and public agencies working to resolve local poverty-related problems in areas such as illiteracy, hunger, unemployment, substance abuse, and homelessness.

State Service Commission Support Grants._These population-based formula grants support the operation of State Service Commissions that administer approximately two-thirds of AmeriCorps State and National grant funds. Commissions are responsible for monitoring sub-grantees and ensuring that they comply with Federal requirements and performance expectations. These grants must be matched by the Commissions.

Training and Technical Assistance._CNCS provides training and technical assistance services to programs and entities receiving or applying for financial support from the CNCS.

Innovation, Demonstration, and Assistance._These initiatives and programs are aimed at incubating new ideas, while expanding proven initiatives that address specific community needs. This includes the Social Innovation Fund, which helps identify and scale-up promising programs across the country. The 2015 Budget for the Social Innovation Fund continues to request that up to 20 percent of funds be available for Pay For Success projects. The Volunteer Generation Fund will focus on strengthening the ability of nonprofits and other organizations to recruit, retain, and manage volunteers, especially senior volunteers. In 2015, the Volunteer Generation Fund will expand to support the most competitive RSVP grantees. Additional activities include the annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, and United We Serve, the President's call to service initiative.

Evaluation._This activity supports the design and implementation of research and evaluation studies and will facilitate the use of evidence and evaluation by CNCS and national service organizations.

The FY 2015 Budget proposes an advance appropriation of $445 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) for fiscal year 2017. In 1975, Congress first agreed to begin providing CPB with a two-year advance appropriation to support long-range financing planning and to insulate programming decisions. This commitment of future federal dollars helps leverage investments from other sources and gives producers essential lead time to plan, design, create, and support programming and services.

CPB uses funding to provide grants to qualified public television and radio stations to be used at their discretion for purposes related to program production or acquisition, as well as for general operations. CPB also supports the production and acquisition of radio and television programs for national distribution. In addition, CPB assists in the financing of several system-wide activities, including national satellite interconnection services and the payment of music royalty fees, and provides limited technical assistance, research, and planning services to improve system-wide capacity and performance.

The Corporation for Travel Promotion (also known as Brand USA) was established by the Travel Promotion Act in 2010 to lead the nation's first global marketing effort to promote the United States as a premier travel destination and to communicate U.S. entry/exit policies and procedures. The public-private partnership, funded through a combination of private sector contributions and Federal matching funds, works in close partnership with the travel industry to encourage increased travel and tourism in the United States.

The Budget proposes to permanently extend the ESTA surcharge established by the Travel Promotion Act, scheduled to expire September 30, 2015, that provides Brand USA's Federal matching funds. Under the proposal, 80 percent of the amount collected will be allocated to Brand USA and 20 percent will be allocated to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to increase support for border agents. These funds will support Brand USA's mission of promoting travel and tourism in the United States.

The Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) was statutorily established by The Inspector General Reform Act of 2008 (P.L. 110–409) (IG Reform Act), which charged CIGIE with addressing integrity, economy, and effectiveness issues that transcend individual Government agencies and increasing the professionalism and effectiveness of personnel by developing policies, standards, and approaches to aid in the establishment of a well-trained and highly skilled workforce in the offices of the Inspectors General.

In 2015, CIGIE will continue its efforts to improve program integrity, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness by conducting cross-cutting studies; further increase the professionalism and effectiveness of the IG community workforce; and further advance the level of practice within the IG community workforce.

Pursuant to Section 7 of the Inspector General Reform Act of 2008, resources for CIGIE activities are provided through interagency funding.

CIGIE plans to spend $7.3 million in 2015 for operations to support its mission and goals, of which $5.1 million will be for CIGIE's Training Institute. Of the $5.1 million for the Training Institute, $0.8 million is planned for the Leadership/Mission Support Academy, $2.6 million is for the Investigative Training Academy, $0.9 million is for the Audit, Inspections and Evaluations Academy, and $0.8 million is for infrastructure and administrative operations associated with the Training Institute. Additionally, the Council expects to collect tuition for Training Institute courses in the amount of $0.9 million, which assists in recovering expenses associated with individual training courses.

The National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997 established the Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency (CSOSA) for the District of Columbia as an independent Federal agency to perform community supervision of D.C. Code offenders. The new agency assumed the adult probation function from the D.C. Superior Court and the parole supervision function from the D.C. Board of Parole. The Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia, responsible for supervising pretrial defendants, is an independent entity within CSOSA with its own budget and organizational structure. The mission of CSOSA is to increase public safety, prevent crime, reduce recidivism, and support the fair administration of justice in close collaboration with the community.

The CSOSA appropriation supports the Community Supervision Program and the Pretrial Services Agency.

Community Supervision Program._This activity provides supervision of adult offenders on probation, parole, or supervised release, consistent with a crime prevention strategy that emphasizes public safety and successful reintegration. The Community Supervision Program employs an integrated system of close supervision, routine drug testing, graduated sanctions, treatment, transitional housing, and other offender support services, including services from community and faith-based collaborations. The activity also develops and provides the courts and the U.S. Parole Commission with critical information for probation, parole, and supervised release decisions. The 2015 Budget provides additional resources for Community Supervision Program offender treatment services and the relocation of an offender supervision field office.

Pretrial Services Agency._This activity assists judicial officers in both the D.C. Superior Court and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia by formulating release recommendations and providing supervision and treatment services to defendants that reasonably assure that individuals on conditional release return to court and do not engage in criminal activity pending their trial and/or sentencing. The Pretrial Services Agency is responsible for enforcing conditions of release, conducting drug testing, administering graduated sanctions, referring defendants to treatment and other social services, and reporting to the courts defendants' compliance with their conditions of release. The 2015 Budget provides additional resources for Pretrial Services Agency defendant treatment services.

The Public Defender Service for the District of Columbia (PDS) is a federally funded, independent organization governed by an eleven-member Board of Trustees. PDS was created in 1970 by a Federal statute (P.L. 91–358; see also D.C. Code Sec. 2–1601, et seq.) to fulfill the constitutional mandate (under Gideon v. Wainwright) to provide criminal defense counsel for individuals who cannot afford to hire a lawyer. PDS's mission is to provide and promote quality legal representation to indigent adults and children facing a loss of liberty in the District of Columbia justice system and thereby protect society's interest in the fair administration of justice.

PDS specializes in representation in the most complex and resource-intensive criminal and delinquency cases. PDS also represents individuals facing involuntary civil commitment in the District's mental health system or parole revocation for D.C. Code offenses.

The Denali Commission was established by the Denali Commission Act of 1998 (P.L. 105–277) and is composed of seven members including the Federal Co-Chair. The Commission's mission is to promote and provide sustainable infrastructure improvement, job training, and other economic development services that improve health, safety, and economic self-sufficiency within rural communities in Alaska. In 2015, the Commission will continue to coordinate cost-shared utilities and infrastructure projects with a focus on the most distressed communities. The 2015 Budget proposes to continue a 50% matching requirement to the Commission's funding of construction projects. This provision, common to other Federal regional economic development agencies, ensures that communities have a stake in their Commission-funded projects. Grants to distressed communities will have a lower matching requirement (20%). This match may be provided by the State of Alaska. In order to improve performance measures, in 2015 the Commission will continue to place an emphasis on gathering output and outcome results from its program partners and grantees.

Under the National Capital Revitalization and Self-Government Improvement Act of 1997, the Federal Government is required to finance the District of Columbia Courts. This payment to the District of Columbia Courts funds the operations of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, Superior Court, and the Court System, as well as capital improvements.

The 2015 Budget provides resources to support the D.C. Courts' core functions, enhanced services for families and incapacitated adults, and improved security, as well as resources for capital improvements to construct the western phase of the Moultrie Courthouse addition (including the D.C. Family Court) and to maintain court facilities in Judiciary Square.

By law, the Courts' annual budget includes estimates of the expenditures for the operations of the District of Columbia Courts prepared by the Joint Committee on Judicial Administration in the District of Columbia and the President's recommendation for funding the District of Columbia Courts. The President's recommended level of $256 million includes $204 million for the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, and the District of Columbia Court System operations and $52 million for capital improvements for District courthouse facilities. Under a separate transmittal to the Congress, the District of Columbia Courts are requesting $347 million: $204 million for operations and $143 million for capital improvements.

Under three Defender Services programs, the District of Columbia Courts appoint and compensate attorneys to represent persons who are financially unable to obtain such representation on their own. The Defender Services programs are: the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) program, which provides court-appointed attorneys to indigent persons who are charged with criminal offenses; the Counsel for Child Abuse and Neglect (CCAN) program, which provides court-appointed attorneys for family proceedings in which child neglect is alleged or where the termination of the parent-child relationship is under consideration and the parent, guardian, or custodian of the child is indigent; and the Guardianship program, which provides for the representation and protection of mentally incapacitated individuals and minors whose parents are deceased. In addition to legal representation, these programs provide indigent persons with services such as transcripts of court proceedings, expert witness testimony, foreign and sign language interpretation, and investigations, and genetic testing. The President's recommended funding level for Defender Services is $50 million. Under a separate transmittal to the Congress, the Courts are also requesting $50 million for Defender Services.

Consistent with the principle of home rule, it is the Administration's view that the District's local autonomy should be enhanced and increased. The Administration will work with Congress and the Mayor to provide the District local budget and legislative autonomy, as proposed in the Budget.

The 2015 Budget provides 43.0 million to support kindergarten through high school education in the District of Columbia. This includes $20 million for D.C. public schools for continued support of the District's efforts to transform its public education system into an innovative and high-achieving system that could be used as a model for urban school district reform across the nation.

Opportunity Scholarship program, a private school voucher program re-authorized in 2011, to carry-out the evaluation and administration activities of the program. Between this request and the amount carried forward from prior fiscal years, the program is expected to have sufficient funding to meet costs through the 2015–2016 school year.

This account receives the annual payments from the General Fund and immediately transfers these amounts into the District of Columbia Federal Pension Fund. Annual payments consist of amounts necessary to amortize: the original unfunded liability over 30 years, the net gain or loss, based on experience, over 10 years, and any other changes in actuarial liability over 20 years, and amounts necessary to fund covered administrative expenses for the year.
