There may be additional formal instructions forthcoming for current and those States preparing applications, but, it’s important for States who are working on applications now. #

“While the federal decision pertains to the remainder of the current fiscal year, it shows that there is reason to be concerned for  the long-term health of the NASPER funds,” said Giordano, following the release. #
