Part B – Allocation of IDEA Part B Subgrants to LEAs
Letter to Manasevit
This OSEP letter addresses how population and poverty allocations are calculated for a State Department of Juvenile Services that provides educational services to children statewide and for a School for the Blind. OSEP explains that the SEA must first determine these institutions to be eligible for funding under 34 CFR 300.705. OSEP concludes awards to eligible institutions would be calculated as they are for all subgrantees under this section – using a base payment, a payment based on population, and a payment based on poverty. OSEP further explains how population and poverty would be calculated for each institution.
