Part C – Use of Funds
Dear OSERS Grantee Letter and FAQs for Prior Approval
In this 2019 letter, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) announced that it is granting prior approval for two direct cost categories to ease the burden on states. This prior approval permits formula grant funds administered by the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) and the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to be used for certain allowable purposes in a timely fashion. The accompanying FAQ provides details on which types of uses no longer require prior approval and which proposed activities continue to require prior approval before the funds can be expended.
