Note: Each state's allotment is based on its relative share of the total national population of "students eligible to participate" in the LEAP Program. If LEAP (formerly SSIG) appropriations are below 1979 levels, each state is allotted an amount proportional to the amount of funds it received in 1979. States must, at a minimum, match LEAP grants dollar-for-dollar with state funds provided through direct state appropriations for this purpose. If a state does not use all of its allotment, the excess funds are distributed to other states in the same proportion as the original distribution.

Pursuant to the Higher Education Act (HEA), Sec. 415A(b)(2), when the appropriation for the LEAP Program exceeds $30 million, the excess shall be available to carry out the Special Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership (SLEAP) Program, authorized under HEA, Sec. 415E. See SLEAP, # 84.069B, also under the topical heading "Federal Student Aid."
