Part B – Allocation of IDEA Part B Subgrants to LEAs
Nonregulatory guidance pertaining to programs with advance appropriations in FY 2002
This letter explains the concept of forward funding for federal grant awards, including IDEA. IDEA makes a portion of the grant award that is appropriated for October 1st of each grant year available on July 1 of that year. Although this letter is specific to fiscal year 2002, it explains how funds are advanced and how funds should be subsequently provided to subgrantees because of the advance funding process and the period of availability of those funds for obligation. This concept remains the same for any fiscal year.
