State Early Intervention


Funding Description

The state budget authorizes the California Department of Education to allocate excess general funds to Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs) for the operation of programs for infants and toddlers with solely low incidence (SLI) disabilities. Programs and services for infants and toddlers who are deaf, blind, or orthopedically impaired are provided SLI grant funds. This grant should be used to cover excess costs of providing services under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) for infants and toddlers with low incidence disabilities.

Eligibility

Eligible Applicants Local educational agencies
Required Eligibility Criteria These grant funds are allocated to SELPAs that demonstrate that the required and supplemental cost of implementing Part C for infants and toddlers with low incidence disabilities were not fully covered by their base Federal Part C grant.

Other Eligibility Considerations A SELPA must serve more infants and toddlers with SLI conditions than were served in the 199293 fiscal year. These funds can only be allocated if the IDEA Part C funds received from the California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) are fully expended.
