Section three outlines current program characteristics (title, year initiated, frequency of appropriations decisions, application schedule, eligibility criteria, residency and citizenship requirements, budgets used in award computation, funding approaches, forward funding, packaging philosophy, procedures, SSIG funds procedures, bases for maximum awards, agency policy areas, other programs, and other agencies). In section four agency personnel distribution is listed. Section five outlines policy matters related to funding trends, state versus federal control, multiple data entry, need analysis, changes planned in the near future, higher education planning coordination, agency role in higher education planning, court actions pending, and the issues of "purpose" and "reasonable access."
