SUBJECT: 2009-2010 Maximum Entitlements – IDEA-B Discretionary Deaf Grant Application

Maximum Entitlements

Maximum entitlements for the 2009-2010 IDEA-B Discretionary Deaf Grant will be available on or around March 25, 2010. LEAs may submit an amendment to include their maximum entitlement in their eGrants application for this grant. LEAs that have not budgeted for their maximum entitlement by early May 2010 will have budgets adjusted by Texas Education Agency (TEA) staff. TEA staff will add the 2009-2010 maximum entitlement funding to the LEA’s largest budgeted class/object code. LEAs will receive e-mails regarding the adjusted budgets and revised Notice of Grant Award (NOGA).

Maximum entitlements for the 2009-2010 IDEA-B Discretionary Deaf Grant will be available online at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/opge/formfund/generalinformation/entitlementsbyprogram.html.


If necessary, an LEA may file to revise the budget entered by TEA staff once notification of their revised NOGA has been received via e-mail. Please refer to the 2009-2010 eGrants Schedule of Instructions for the IDEA-B Discretionary Deaf Grant Application to determine if an amendment is necessary.

The deadline to submit amendments is 5:00 p.m. Central Time, June 15, 2010.

Reporting Deadlines

The following table lists reporting deadlines for the 2009-2010 IDEA-B Discretionary Deaf Grant. LEAs that are awarded grants are responsible for meeting all required deadlines. Failure to meet deadlines may result in loss of funds and could cause the LEA to be identified as “high risk.”
