What is funded mandate?

When a higher level of the U.S. government (i.e. the federal government) tells lower branches of the government (i.e. state governments) to do something, that's a mandate. If the federal government give the states money to help them do whatever they want them to do, that's a funded mandate. If they don't, if they just expect the states to do it on their own, that's an unfunded mandate. So when the Americans with Disabilities Act was passed, the federal government told the state governments they had to make all their office buildings handicap-accessible. They did give the states some money for the construction (although some say not enough), so that was a funded mandate.
