12
Awarding IDEA Parts B ARRA Funds
  • No application required from states to receive
    the first 50 percent of the IDEA ARRA funds
  • Eligibility for the first 50 percent based on
    eligibility established for FY 2008 funds
  • For the remaining 50 percent, a state will have
    to submit, for review and approval by the
    Department, additional information that addresses
    how the state will meet the accountability and
    reporting requirements in section 1512 of the ARRA

13
Obligating IDEA ARRA Funds
  • IDEA ARRA funds are available for obligation from
    Feb 17, 2009 (date of enactment of the ARRA)
  • All IDEA ARRA funds must be obligated by
    September 30, 2011
  • IDEA Part B ARRA funds flow through to LEAs and
    do not increase the amount a SEA may retain at
    the SEA for state-level activities
  • IDEA ARRA funds should be obligated
    expeditiously, but sensibly

14
Reporting on IDEA ARRA Funds
  • IDEA ARRA funds must be separately tracked and
    accounted for, and reported on
  • Section 1512(c) of ARRA requires reports for
    recipients of ARRA funds

    requirements as soon as possible

15
IDEA Part B ARRA Fiscal Issues
  • An LEA may be able to reduce its state and local
    maintenance of effort (MOE) by 50 of the
    increase in its IDEA Grants to States amount, if
    the LEA meets certain criteria (613(a)(2)(C))
  • An LEA may (or some LEAs must) use up to 15
    percent of its total IDEA Part B funds (Grants to
    States and Preschool Grants) for coordinated
    early intervening services (613(f))
  • LEA-level MOE may NOT be waived
  • For more details, see IDEA ARRA guidance and the
    IDEA regulations

16
Uses of IDEA ARRA funds
  • This large one-time increment in IDEA funding
    must be used consistently with current IDEA
    statutory and regulatory requirements and
    applicable requirements in the General Education
    Provisions Act (GEPA) and Education Department
    General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR)
  • For more details, see IDEA ARRA guidance at
    http//www.ed.gov/policy/gen/leg/recovery/programs

    manufactured goods used in a construction project
    (ARRA section 1605), as well as the wage rate

  • LEAs will need to obtain prior approval from the
    state to use IDEA ARRA funds for construction or
    equipment

18
Uses of IDEA Part B Funds that Support Assurances
and Avoid The Cliff
  • Short-term investments that have the potential
    for long-term benefits, rather than for
    expenditures the state may not be able to sustain
    once the ARRA funds are expended

    http//www.ed.gov/policy/gen/leg/recovery/programs

    development for special education and regular

    math, and science, and positive behavioral
    supports to improve outcomes for students with
    disabilities
  • Expand availability and range of inclusive
    placement options for preschoolers with
    disabilities by developing capacity of public and
    private preschool programs to serve these
    children

    teachers, businesses and employers, community
