• In a study of the use of General Revenue Sharing (GRS) funds by the states and by cities of 100,000 and over in the United States for fiscal years 1973 and 1974, we found that few states and large cities allocated or requested GRS funds for Maternal and Child Health (MCH), Crippled Children (CC), and related services. One third of the states and cities reported suggestions for use of GRS funds for MCH, CC, and related services.
