The Developmental Disabilities Administration provides funding for a wide range of services for thousands of individuals with developmental disabilities each year. During the Fiscal Year 2011 budget closeout, despite projections that expenses were in line with revenues, the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene learned that there was an approximately $34.4 million surplus in the DDA budget. Of this amount, $25.6 million was determined to be state funding from the FY 2010 budget that needed to revert back to the general fund. The balance of $8.8 million was moved forward into FY 2012. DHMH Secretary Joshua M. Sharfstein asked the Office of the Inspector General to investigate how the surplus occurred. The documents on this page provide information about the budget reversion, and steps taken and future plans to remedy the situation. More information will be posted to this page as it becomes available.
