State Funding Allocations

FY 2019 State Allocations

Allocation Formula for SEDAP only

The DRA-enabling legislation requires the Authority to update distressed county designations annually. The following calculations reflect these updates.

2019 Allocation Methodology

Factors used in determining 2019 Allocation:

Factor Weight

Equity Factor (divided equally among eight states)  


Distressed Population (DRA counties/parishes only)


Distressed County Area (DRA counties/parishes only)


Population Factor (DRA counties/parishes only)


The model includes factors using 2019 distressed counties ddata (based on 2017 Per Capita Income from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and average unemployment from November 2016 to October 2018 national unemployment rate from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics) to determine each state's allocated percentage of the total budgeted for SEDAP.

The table below shows the Fiscal Year 2019 states' allocations
