Funding shall occur on a monthly basis as funds are available. First-time enrollments must be first to receive funding in the month they are approved. If available funds are insufficient to cover the remaining enrollments in a given month, the unfunded enrollments must be first to receive funding in the subsequent month. First-time enrollments in that month will be funded following the funding of enrollments brought forward from the previous month(s). See illustration below.
