Instructions for Downloading the Agency File

The STAC Agency file contains information on approximately 1400 agencies and 3500 programs per school year. The data is kept on two files - one which contains the provider data, which is constant across school years, and a second file which contains program data. Program data is specific to a school year. The program data file has information relevant to the 2002-03 through the current school years. Both ASCII comma versions (.ASC) and fixed length text versions (.TXT) of the data files are available. Two other files which are also available contain the file descriptions of the data files. These files can be accessed in two ways - zipped or unzipped. For those of you unfamiliar with ZIP files, the files can be downloaded individually. It will take a little more time, but you will get the same results. These files are refreshed twice a month.
