Annual State Application under Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) will be submitted by May 12, 2017, for federal fiscal year (FFY) 2017.

The California Department of Education (CDE), Special Education Division, has completed its preliminary application for FFY 2017 federal funding under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), as Amended in 2004, Public Law 108-446.

The state application was available for 60 days and public written comment was accepted for at least 30 days prior to submission to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).

The IDEA established the content for the state’s application. Section I is comprised of the state’s Submission Statement for Part B of the IDEA. Section II of the state application includes a series of assurances and certifications of federal policies as detailed by the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR). In addition, the state application also includes a chart indicating the allocation of federal funds (Section III); a list identifying any rule, regulation, or policy that is state-imposed, not required by IDEA or Federal regulations (Section IV). Maintenance of State Financial Support (Section V) is not part of the eligibility requirement for the state. OSEP requires the state to follow this application process for funding.
