State Early Intervention

The state budget authorizes the 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 disabilities. Programs and services for infants and toddlers who are deaf, blind, or orthopedically impaired are provided by solely low incidence grant funds. This grant should be used to cover excess costs of providing services under Part C of IDEA for infants and toddlers with low incidence disabilities.

Eligibility
Criteria
These grant funds are allocated to SELPAs who 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. To qualify, a SELPA must demonstrate that it serves more infants and toddlers than they were funded in their Federal Part C grant.
Other
Eligibility
Considerations
A SELPA must serve more infants and toddlers with SLI conditions than they served in the 1992-93 fiscal year. These funds can only be allocated if the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Part C funds received from the Department of Developmental Services are fully expended.
