Part B – Allocation of IDEA Part B Subgrants to LEAs
Letter to Hokenson
This OSEP letter responds to questions regarding Part B subgrants to educational service agencies (ESAs) and individual LEAs that do not participate in an ESA. OSEP explains that states may award subgrants to entities that meet the definition of LEA and that LEAs may not subgrant to another LEA. Part B funds provided to member districts by ESAs may not be provided through subgrants, but ESAs may provide Part B funds to its member districts through a contract.
