Source: Data extracted from the Impact Aid system.

Frequency: Annually.

Next Data Available: April 2006
 
Explanation: In 2006 this measure reports results for only the Children with Disabilities Program. The previous measure combined results for both Basic Support Payments and Children with Disabilities. The resulting data for the disaggregated measure are the same as those for the combined measure because payments are made at the same time under one PR award number. The FY 2005 data were used to establish the baseline.
 
Objective 2 of 2: Make accurate payments.
Indicator 2.1 of 1: Overpayment forgiveness requests: The number of requests to forgive overpayments of Children with Disabilities payments.

Explanation: In 2006 this measure reports results for only the Children with Disabilities Program. The previous measure combined results for both Basic Support Payments and Children with Disabilities. When a district is overpaid under Section 8003 it is most likely that they are overpaid in both 8003 (b) and 8003 (d). As a result the data are likely to be the same in both instances. The FY 2005 data were used to establish the baseline.
