IDEA Funding Coalition Co-Chairs Respond to FY22 Omnibus

AASA is proud to co-chair the IDEA Full Funding Coalition with the National Center for Learning Disabilities and the Council for Exceptional Children.

The following statement was released by the co-chairs of the IDEA Full Funding Coalition, a group of national and state organizations committed to full funding of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA):

“The final FY22 omnibus is a missed opportunity for Congress to self-correct on its chronic underfunding of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). As co-chairs of the IDEA Full Funding Coalition, we are disappointed to see that, once again, supporting infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities and honoring this statutory commitment remains outside the scope of Congressional priorities.”
