Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO provided information on the Adult Education Act (AEA), focusing on the: (1) funding history of AEA; (2) changes that have taken place in the amount of services that the State-Administered Basic Grant Program provides; and (3) goals, target populations, and service recipients of the State-Administered Basic Grant Program. GAO noted that: (1) AEA funding increased from $100 million in fiscal year (FY) 1984 to over $300 million in FY 1994; (2) enrollment in the State-Administered Basic Grant Program rose from approximately 377,000 participants in 1966 to almost 4 million participants in 1994; and (3) the purpose of AEA is to improve educational opportunities for adults who lack the necessary literacy skills to become a citizen and to be productive in their employment.
