|State||Number of Individuals on ADAP Waiting List||Percent of the Total ADAP Waiting List||Increase/Decrease From Previous Reporting Period||Date Waiting List Began|
|South Dakota||15||7%||-6||August 2012|
Note: ADAPs are required to recertify all enrolled clients at least twice a year. This process often creates limited slots below an ADAP enrollment cap. ADAPs often will not eliminate their waiting list until they are able to increase or remove the enrollment cap entirely.
A FY2014 continuing resolution (CR) for the federal budget was passed by both chambers of Congress in order to end the government shutdown. This CR funds the federal government at FY2013 post-sequestration spending levels through January 15, 2014. As part of this fiscal deal, both the House and the Senate agreed to reconcile their budget resolutions in committee and report on their progress by December 13, 2013. Further, unless Congress provides an alternative to the sequester put in place under the 2011 Budget Control Act, agencies can expect a new round of cuts beginning January 15, 2014.
The FY2013 ERF funds were awarded last month to ADAPs. The FY2013 ERF funds consist of $65 million dollars in competing continuation funds for existing ERF grantees and $10 million in new competing funds available to ADAPs not previously receiving ERF. The budget period for these FY2013 ERF funds will be six months (through March 31, 2014) to allow future alignment of the FY2014 Part B base/ADAP earmark awards and the FY2014 ADAP ERF. HRSA has released both funding opportunities announcements (FOAs). The FY2014 ADAP ERF application is due November 25, 2013. TheFY2014 Part B base/ADAP earmark application is due on December 9, 2013.
Health departments should continue to expect delays and partial awards across programs, including ADAPs, as "regular order" of the appropriations and budget cycle remains in flux.
