HHS Agency Portfolios

HHS is comprised of Operating Divisions (OPDIVs) and Staff Divisions (STAFFDIVs), each with its own unique mission. Each granting agency has a portfolio section in this report that contains its mission statement and its current fiscal year grant information. Taggs logo

Each portfolio page has a treemap.

The online version of this Annual Report uses various interactive charts to show these award comparisons. The data contained in these charts are substantial and best viewed in tables online.

A treemap is a chart resembling the concentric circles of a “tree trunk,” that compares FY 2014 and FY 2013 non-discretionary grant program awards by Grantee Type, Grantee Class and Award activity, and displays grant information in several ways. It shows the number of dollars awarded for a type of grant in a fiscal year, the proportion of dollar awards for the type of grant in the current fiscal year, and how much the award dollar value changed from the previous fiscal year.

Closed-ended entitlement program - A type of non-discretionary grant program where the award amount constitutes an upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government may pay for allowable programmatic activities.

Open-ended entitlement program - A type of non-discretionary grant program where, based on compliance with programmatic requirements, e.g., provision of specified services to eligible beneficiaries, the OPDIV is required to reimburse the recipient (generally a state) for all or a portion of eligible costs and there is no upper limit on the amount of funds the federal government will pay for allowable services and activities (as specified in the governing statute and implementing regulations).
