FY 2021 MIECHV Funding Formula

HRSA awarded FY 2021 formula awards to eligible recipients based on the following formula:

  • Need Funding - Approximately one-third of the grant allocation available was distributed based on the proportion of children under five living in poverty as calculated by the Census Bureau's Small Area Income and Poverty Estimates (SAIPE). 2019 SAIPE data was used to the extent available, and these data may vary from previous year's SAIPE data. The Puerto Rico Community Survey (PRCS) data were used as a proxy to determine need funding for Puerto Rico.

    If applicable, the calculated amount was reduced by the proportion of the FY 2017 de-obligation amount to the total FY 2017 award, as reported to HRSA as of February 9, 2021.

    There is a $1.0 million minimum need-based award for recipients.

  • Base Funding - Approximately two-thirds of the grant allocation was proportionally distributed based on each recipient's base funding portion of the FY 2020 formula grant award ceiling amounts. More specifically, Base Funding considers the average of the awardee's past competitive awards.
  • Guard Rails - In an effort to maintain stability, the total amount for which an applicant was eligible to apply was adjusted, where appropriate, to ensure that any available recipient funding did not fluctuate by more than five percent from the prior year award.
