Federal/State Funding
ZOOM: High Cost Fund Application for Special Education 2020-2021 (for ISDs and Charter Schools)

ESC-20 provides training, technical assistance and resources for complying with state and federal regulations, state monitoring systems and federal funding requirements. Monthly special education director meetings are hosted to share all relevant information.

Important Session Information:

This session is being held via ZOOM.

The session is designed for special education directors who are interested in requesting a High Cost Fund (HCF) award from TEA (Texas Education Agency).

High Cost Fund is an optional source of federal funds to help offset the financial impact on LEAs (local educational agencies, which includes ISDs and Open-Enrollment Charter Schools) that provide educational services to high-need children with disabilities (under IDEA-B, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, Part B).

Participants will receive an overview of High Cost Funds and gain an understanding of how to complete and submit the High Cost Fund application to request an award.

The deadline to submit the HCF application to TEA is May 15, 2021.
