The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 Section 2014(a) provides supplemental funding under the obligation of IDEA Part B for Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2021/Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 for the IDEA formula grant programs. Eligible LEAs that received approval of FFY21/FY22 IDEA Part B Section 611/619 will be shown through a live virtual webinar platform, the abbreviated sections that are required to request the funds that must be tracked through the electronic grant management system (eGMS).

Special Education Directors, Business Managers and Grant Managers/personnel are encouraged to attend the one hour session (9:30-10:30am or 1:30-2:30pm) on 9/29/21. The training will include time for questions and answers and will focus on the breakdown of FY22 ARP IDEA Part B mandated supplemental funding and the eGMS process that will be utilized for monitoring of these funds through a budget(s), with a goal(s) and activities that align with IDEA Part B and assist with the excess costs of specialized instruction and related services for students with disabilities ages 3-21 (Section 611) and 3-5 (Section 619).
