What I am interested in knowing is, are there political expectations, compromises, or loss of/altering of, policy decisions from accepting any of these federal monies.

Does any federal entity now have financial and political clout in the decision making process, by making these funds available. In addition, will departments/agencies become so dependent upon these funds, that a compromise in operations or decisions becomes a problem?

Or, is this simply, monies are made available with no strings attached?
