 Note: Dollars in millions

*Fifty million in federal dollars are allocated for the Title V abstinence-only-until-marriage program. The grant requires states to provide three state-raised dollars or the equivalent in services for every four federal dollars received. If all states participated in the program and contributed matching funds, the match would total $37.5 million.
** CBAE includes approximately $4.5 million each year for evaluation.
*** In addition to the three traditional funding streams, at least $3.75 million in earmark funds were allocated for abstinence-only-until-marriage programs in 2004 and 2005, along with $835,000 in 2008 and $535,000 in 2009. The majority of these earmarks went to Pennsylvania. In the Fiscal Year 2007 Edition of the State Profiles, SIECUS erroneously reported that Pennsylvania received $3.36 million in earmarks for Fiscal Year 2007. While the Senate version of the Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education (Labor-HHS) appropriations bill did include the earmarks, there were no earmarks included in the final bill.
