Subject: REMINDER FY12 Part B Budget Application Due July 1

Source: Special Education Finance

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Financial Administrators, Superintendents

Date: June 27, 2011

The FY12 Part B Budget Application is due July 1, 2011.  Budget applications will be substantially approved as of the submission date; therefore, IDEA Part B funds shall not be obligated until the application has been submitted. 

Please note that FY11 carryover amounts for regular Part B are NOT part of the FY12 allocation amounts in ePeGS.  In order for FY11 carryover funds to show in the FY12 "Funds Available" amount in ePeGs, the Special Education Finance staff must first approve the FY11 Part B FER.  This does not mean you should wait until the FER is approved to submit your budget application.  Go ahead and submit the FY12 budget application by the due date and then revise/amend the application once the FER has been approved to include FY11 carry-over amounts.

Please remember, FY11 Part B ARRA funds will NOT be carried over to FY12.  All Part B ARRA funds must be expended by September 30, 2011.  Districts will have until April 30, 2012, to make amendments to their FY12 budget applications.
