WHAT DOES THE INEFFECTIVE RATING MEAN?
The program rating indicates how well a program is performing, so the public can see how effectively tax dollars are being spent.
Based on our most recent assessments, 3% of Federal programs are Ineffective.
More information on how we assess and rate programs is available here. Funding information for each program can be found with the President's Budget.
