Fair Share

March 4th, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

CFO Alex sink says the state isnt receiving its fair share in federal grants. Sink pulled together a report that shows Floridas Washington office isnt very effective and that an office in Tallahassee designed to review grant applications might be slowing the process down. The CFO is calling on lawmakers to also make matching money available, even if they are not in town.

Florida is receiving about 1098 dollars in per capita grants while other states are receiving much more. We are ranking 45th in per capita federal grants, Sink said.

Florida would have to receive almost another 6 billion dollars to reach the national average for grants.
