Part B – Allocation of IDEA Part B Subgrants to LEAs
Letter to Bass
This OSEP letter responds to a question about the formulas for IDEA sections 611 and 619 funds not taking into consideration growth in the number of children provided a free appropriate public education. The letter explains that, as the appropriations for sections 611 and 619 increase, a larger portion of section 611 and section 619 funds will be distributed based on population and poverty, rather than the base payment which is calculated based on a prior year’s child count.
