The first funding wave of 2017 came in mid-May, just 36 days before the start of the funding year, and included commitments totaling $48.6 million. This was a modest improvement over funding year 2016, but fell far short of earlier years in which more dollars were committed much sooner. As illustrated in this prior analysis, first funding waves can come earlier (i.e. 60+ days prior to the start of the funding year) and be much larger (i.e. $200+ million).
