processing timeliness in Families First (FF), Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program (SNAP), Vocational Rehabilitation (VR), and by
maintaining the SNAP active error rates below the national average.

State Appropriations

Federal Revenue

Other Revenue

*Actual FY15 state appropriations are less than Estimated FY16 as a result of savings in payroll, with
additional savings attributed to decreasing caseloads in SNAP, TANF, and Child Care. The federal variance is
all decreased caseloads of major federal programs (listed above), and the other revenue is SSA
reimbursement. The Departments FY17 Requested Savings Plan accounts for all of the differences
between Estimated FY16 and Requested FY17.

FY15

*The increase from FY14 to FY15 is the result of additional state appropriation for SNAP
administration funded by a transfer of $22.5 million in savings from TennCare, which resulted from
TennCare assuming the lead role in Medicaid eligibility, and DHS shifting to a support role.
