We hope this calculator will help you better understand the formula grant calculation process for the Basic VR program. Here are some tips on how to use this screen.

  • Choose the amount of explanation you would like to view. There are three options.
    • Detailed gives the most detail, but makes this screen longer. We recommend this if you are unfamiliar with the formula grant process.
    • Brief gives only a brief label to each step of the process. This makes the table shorter and easier to read, but is appropriate only if you are already familiar with the formula grant process.
    • Popup is a hybrid of the two approaches. All of the detailed information is included, but is only shown to you when you click on the "Info" icons.
  • Choose the funding period. There are a few things you need to know to make this choice. "FY "refers to Fiscal Year. The Federal fiscal year runs from Oct 1 to Sept 30, so FY 2012 refers to the period from October 1, 2011 through September 30, 2012. "CR" refers to Continuing Resolution. In the event Congress has not approved a budget by October 1st, they will often pass a Continuing Resolution to continue funding programs at the prior year's level. You must choose at least one funding period.
  • Choose your primary state.
  • Choose a state for comparison (this is optional).
