Sec. 653.21 How does the Secretary determine the amount of a grant to a State?

From the funds appropriated for this program, the Secretary determines the amount of the grant to each
participating State on the basis of the ratio of the school-age population in that State compared to the school-age
population in all participating States. The Secretary determines the number of persons in a State on the basis of the
most recently available data from the Bureau of the Census.
