GRF & MEDICAID VARIANCE SUMMARY
For the first four months of FY 2017, total GRF sources were below estimate by $262.2 million while total GRF
uses were below estimate by $155.6 million.
Year-to-date GRF tax revenue was $160.1 million below estimate at the end of October.
The personal income tax and the sales and use tax were below estimate by $82.6 million and
$76.4 million, respectively.
Although a temporary shift in Medicaid expenditures from non-GRF funds to the GRF resulted in positive
variances in October GRF Medicaid expenditures and federal grant revenue deposited into the GRF, all-
funds Medicaid expenditures in October continued the trend of coming in well below estimates.
Year-to-date GRF Medicaid expenditures were $95.1 million below estimate and all-funds Medicaid
expenditures were $746.5 million below estimate.
GRF sources mainly consist of state tax revenue (63%) and federal grants (35%) but also include some state
nontax revenue and transfers in.
