1  All numbers reported are based on the Federal Fiscal Year Calendar (October 1 - September 30), which means that FY20 numbers are still projections. Numbers for FY19 and after are calculated using revised instructions from the Maryland Department of Aging that now excludes certain home delivered meal participants, resulting in a lower number.
