Infant Discretionary Funds


Funding Description

These funds are established for direct early education services to infants who have disabilities. In the past, they were used to offset shortfalls in the growth appropriation for infants. With the implementation of the Early Intervention Program (Part C), the California Department of Education reserved these funds to address unanticipated direct service impacts of transitioning to the new Part C program.
