The IDEA Fiscal Forum (IFF) provides opportunities for Part C coordinators, state directors of special education, and state IDEA fiscal specialists to build knowledge and capacity by connecting and sharing with peers on critical IDEA fiscal issues.

CIFR invites Part C coordinators and IDEA state fiscal staff to attend the on-site Part C IDEA Fiscal Forum 2023 in Atlanta this May. The conference theme is Purpose-Driven Data: Putting the “Why” Into Fiscal Processes and will bring together state staff across the country, TA providers from multiple centers, and OSEP staff to share expertise on critical IDEA fiscal issues.

  • Begins: 9 a.m., Tuesday, May 9
  • Ends: 12 p.m., Thursday, May 11
  • Location: Hotel Colee, 3377 Peachtree Rd NE, Atlanta, GA

Part C IFF 2023 participants will:

  • gain knowledge to increase the fidelity of implementation of IDEA fiscal requirements to ensure appropriate use and oversight of IDEA funds,
  • build their state’s capacity to collect, report, and use special education fiscal data, and
  • collaborate with colleagues within and across states to support continued learning.



Registration is free, but space is limited. To encourage participation and collaboration from all states, CIFR will pay for lodging for two people with IDEA fiscal responsibilities per state. Please coordinate with your Part C coordinator to determine who the lodging should cover.

***NOTE: At this time, the number of registrants per state is capped at two to provide all states an equal opportunity to attend. IDEA fiscal staff from any state that wants to send and pay for more participants should register to be added to a waitlist. If and when their registration is accepted, CIFR will send an email confirmation by March 24.***
