Special State Reserve Funds (SSRF)

INTRODUCTION

Purpose of Program
Special State Reserve funds are for emergency situations for children with disabilities. Often, a high-needs child will moves into a Local Education Agency (LEA) or charter school after budgets are set and funds are committed. This situation places a fiscal burden on the LEA/Charter School to secure needed funds for special education and related services for these children.


Children Served

These funds are made available to local education agencies and charter schools for high-cost children with disabilities ages 3-21, initially enrolled in the LEA/charter school after all funds have been committed. Children with disabilities in state-operated programs and corrections do not receive these funds.


Application Process
The application is submitted and approved by the Special Programs Section in the Exceptional Children Division. Agencies are notified of status of application and the amount of funds to be received is forwarded to Financial Services for allocation to LEA.


Amount of Funds Per Child
The amount per child is based on the services requested. Requests range from teacher personnel to educational supplies and equipment.
