Assistance Considerations

Formula and Matching Requirements

Statutory Formula: An SEA may receive only one incentive grant award regardless of the number of consortia in which it participates. Consortium incentive grant awards are calculated on the basis of a two-tiered formula: SEAs whose MEP allocations are $1 million or less will, in general, receive a grant award that is twice the amount of the award provided to SEAs whose MEP allocations are greater than $1 million. Within each tier, awards will be of equal size. However, no SEA will receive an incentive grant award that exceeds the amount of its Title I, Part C, MEP formula grant or $250,000, whichever is less. Matching requirements are not applicable to this program. This program does not have MOE requirements.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance

Consortium Incentive Grants for interstate and intrastate coordination activities will be awarded for up to three years, subject to the availability of funds and performance reviews demonstrating substantial progress. See the following for information on how assistance is awarded/released: electronic transfer.
