2023–24 Federal Transferability

Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS) Winter Release data entry instructions for the 2023–24 Federal Transferability data collection form.
Data Collection Purpose

Federal transferability of funds is governed by Title V, Part A in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) Section 5102. A local educational agency (LEA) may transfer Title II, Part A and/or Title IV, Part A program funds to other allowable programs pursuant to ESSA Section 5103[b][1].

Program Information

Note: This transferability is not the same as Title V, Part B Subpart 1 Alternative Fund Use Authority (AFUA) governed by ESSA Section 5211. Funds utilized under Title V, Part B Subpart 1 AFUA are not to be included on this form.

Regardless of transfers, if less than 100 percent of funds are transferred, the LEA will continue to be responsible for meeting Title II, Part A and Title IV, Part A legal requirements, which are required as a condition of accepting the funds. In addition, funds transferred to other allowable programs are subject to the legal requirements for those programs.
