FY21 IDEA Full Funding Letter

 
On December 1st, 2020, AASA and twenty-eight other allied organizations sent a letter to the Congressional Subcommittees on education funding urging leaders to provide the maximum increase possible in funding for the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as part of a fair and proportional allocation for the final Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 LHHS‐Education appropriations bill.
 
The coalition – which represents over 6.8 million students with disabilities, their teachers, instructional support personnel, parents, school boards, and administrators – called on congressional leaders to provide no less than $14 billion for IDEA Part B, 684 million for Part B, $975 million for IDEA Part C, $254 million for IDEA Part D and $70 million for the Center for Special  Education Research. Thus, putting IDEA on a glide path to full funding.
 
AASA, which chairs the Coalition for IDEA full funding, was proud to lead this effort and continue advocating for a prioritized and meaningful investment in IDEA that does not negatively impact funding for other education programs. You can access the letter by clicking here.
