TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:

SUBJECT: 2009-2010 Maximum Entitlements – Special Education Consolidated Grant Application

Maximum Entitlements
Maximum entitlements for programs in the 2009-2010 Special Education Consolidated Grant Application will be available on or around March 25, 2010.  LEAs may submit an amendment to include their maximum entitlement and/or roll forward in their eGrants application.  LEAs that have not budgeted for their maximum entitlement and/or roll forward 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 for the respective grant.  LEAs will receive e-mails regarding the adjusted budgets and revised Notice of Grant Award (NOGA).

Maximum entitlements for programs in the 2009-2010 Special Education Consolidated Grant Application will be available at http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/opge/formfund/generalinformation/entitlementsbyprogram.html.

Amendments
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 Special Education Consolidated 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 programs in the 2009-2010 Special Education Consolidated Grant Application.  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.”

Please note various project end dates have changed to September 30, 2010.  A letter is to be posted on the TEA Correspondence page and will provide further detail on the reason for the revised project end date.
