45 CFR 1385.8 - Formula for determining allotments.
The Commissioner will allocate funds appropriated under the Act for the State Developmental Disabilities Councils and the Protection and Advocacy Systems on the following basis:
(a) Two-thirds of the amount appropriated are allotted to each State according to the ratio the population of each State bears to the population of the United States. This ratio is weighted by the relative per capita income for each State. The data used to compute allotments are supplied by the U.S. Department of Commerce, for the three most recent consecutive years for which satisfactory data are available.
(b) One-third of the amount appropriated is allotted to each State on the basis of the relative need for services of persons with developmental disabilities. The relative need is determined by the number of persons receiving benefits under the Childhood Disabilities Beneficiary Program (section 202(d)(1)(B)(ii) of the Social Security Act), (42 U.S.C. 402(d)(1)(B)(ii)).
