Understanding and Using Fiscal Data: 
A Guide for Part C Staff

The site is intended to help state Part C lead agency staff better understand strategic fiscal policy questions, the fiscal data elements needed to address those questions, and the benefits of using these data. Fiscal data provides powerful information for decision-making, program management, and policy-making. The use of fiscal data, especially when paired with child and family demographic data about services, can help state Part C staff stakeholders better understand the dynamics that influence the state Part C program and its financing.
