This figure includes the project consultant's projections of expenditures for States who were unable to supply an all-inclusive dollar figure for one or more of the reasons noted above. The differences between the estimated expenditures ($4.2 billion) and the reported expenditures ($3.2 billion) are primarily in the areas of Foster Care Maintenance Payments and Training, Adoption subsidies, and Administrative Costs.
