Clarification on Release of State Aid and P-12 Grant Program Payments Subjected to 20% DOB Withholdings

The Division of the Budget (DOB) has informed NYSED that DOB will, at some point, be providing approval for NYSED to make, prior to the end of the 2020-21 state fiscal year, the payments for state aid and other P-12 grant programs that DOB has subjected to 20% withholding. However, please be aware that NYSED is unable to make these payments until DOB provides NYSED with funding and with approval as to the date these payments may be made. NYSED will notify school districts when DOB approval is received and when school districts may expect to receive currently withheld funds.

08-20-2020
On August 13, 2020, Division of the Budget (DOB) issued the
FY 2021 First Quarterly State Budget Financial Plan Update which notes that, in the absence of Federal action since enactment of the FY 2021 budget, DOB began withholding 20 percent of most local aid payments in June, and that all or a portion of these withholds may be converted to permanent reductions, depending on the size and timing of new Federal aid, if any.

In July, DOB began approving General Support for Public Schools (GSPS) payments to school districts (including 3609-a General Aid, 3609-b Excess Cost Aid, and 3609-d BOCES Aid payments) at 80% of the otherwise scheduled amounts.

DOB’s Updated Financial Plan includes $8.2 billion in recurring local aid reductions, and states that the earliest DOB expects to transmit a detailed aid-to-localities reduction plan to the Legislature is late in the second quarter of the State’s FY 2021, and that, in the absence of unrestricted Federal aid, DOB will continue to withhold a range of payments through the second quarter of FY 2021.
