Department of Education Invites Special Education Planning Grant Applications

This week, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitation Services invited states to apply for planning funding designed to help them increase instructional time and reduce administrative burdens. The grant program seeks to promote academic achievement for students with disabilities by providing technical assistance, supporting model demonstration projects, disseminating useful information, and implementing activities that are supported by scientifically based research. The estimated available funds for this program total $1,500,000. The Department will not make an award exceeding $150,000 for a single budget period of 12 months. Applications are due by August 14, 2019 and further information is available here.
