1Does not reflect a significant amount of Federal funding to school districts to be distributed over multiple years.
2Total State share Medicaid funding is reported prior to the spending offset from the application of Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) payments, which are deposited directly to a Medicaid Escrow Fund to cover a portion of the State’s takeover of Medicaid costs for counties and New York City. The value of the offset is reported in “All Other” local assistance disbursements. Spending is offset by the benefit of enhanced FMAP of 6.2 percent for 5 quarters in FY 2021, and 3 quarters in FY 2022.
3Multi-year estimates exclude a portion of spending reported under the Medicaid Global Cap that has no impact on mental hygiene service delivery or operations.
4All Other includes education, parks, environment, economic development, and public safety, as well as the MSA payment offset, and a reconciliation between school year and State fiscal year spending on School Aid.
