Instructions: 2013-14 Consolidation of Funds

Consolidated Application, Winter Release program instructions for the 2013-14 Consolidation of Administrative Funds.
Data Collection Purpose

The 2013–14 Consolidation of Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Administrative Funds screen is used to request approval to consolidate ESEA funds for the administration of one or more programs under ESEA (or such other programs as the United States Secretary of Education shall designate), as authorized in Section 9203 of the ESEA, as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001.


Guidance

ESEA Section 9203(a) provides that the maximum amount that can be consolidated shall not be more than the percentage, established in each program, of the total available for the local educational agency (LEA) under those programs. For Title III Limited English Proficient (LEP) Students the maximum amount is two percent of the total grant amount, as provided in ESEA section 3115(b). No maximum amounts are specified in the ESEA for the other programs (including Title III Immigrant Students, and Title IV Part B); the maximum that can be consolidated is what is reasonable and necessary for the proper and efficient administration of the programs, provided that the amount distributed to any program, when combined with the program’s indirect costs, does not exceed any administrative cost cap established by law or regulations.

For further information, please see the Program Guidance document Web page.
