Purpose of the Program

Special Education Fiscal Support provides additional funding for eligible Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to secure evaluation staff, related services personnel, and/or special education teachers to fill short-term needs in the area of initial evaluations, compensatory services and extended school year services (ESY).

 

Application Instructions

There is one consolidated application for fiscal support related to initial evaluations, compensatory services, and extended school year services. Local Education Agencies (LEAs) may choose to apply for one or more areas of fiscal support by completing the necessary information in corresponding sections of the application. LEAs receiving fiscal support must maintain localized documentation for a period of five years following receipt of funds. This documentation should align with the rationale and assurances in the application for random validation and quality assurance checks.

The application period for Special Education Fiscal Support Round 2 has closed.
