Grant Description
Grants to USA and territories SEAs, LEAs, IHEs, agencies, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and Tribes for technical assistance to improve educational services and interventions for children with certain disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete.

The purpose of the TA&D program is to promote academic achievement and improve results for children with disabilities by providing TA, supporting model demonstration projects, disseminating useful information, and implementing activities that are supported by scientifically based research. The purposes of the PD program are to (1) help address State-identified needs for personnel preparation in special education, early intervention, related services, and general education to work with children, including infants, toddlers, and youth with disabilities; and (2) ensure that those personnel have the necessary skills and knowledge, derived from practices that have been determined through scientifically based research, to be successful in serving those children.

This competition includes one absolute priority: State Technical Assistance Projects to Improve Services and Results for DeafBlind Children and a National Technical Assistance and Dissemination Center for DeafBlind Children.

The State Technical Assistance Projects to Improve Services and Results for DeafBlind Children (State DeafBlind Projects) will help SEAs, Part C LAs, LEAs, including charter school LEAs, EIS providers, teachers, service providers, and families to address the educational, related services, transitional, and early intervention needs of DeafBlind children. The State DeafBlind Projects are designed to increase access to, and progress in, the grade-level general education curriculum, including grade-level or alternate academic achievement standards, for DeafBlind children and improve their communication skills with a goal of supporting lifelong learning, including postsecondary education and employment readiness.

For the purposes of this competition, the Department has separated the absolute priority into two focus areas: State DeafBlind Projects (Focus Area A) and a National Center (Focus Area B). Applicants must identify whether they are applying under Focus Area A, Focus Area B, or both.

Note: Non-SEA applicants must include a letter of support from the SEA indicating that the SEA will work with the applicant if the applicant is awarded the grant.

With respect to Focus Area A of the priority, in order to provide SEAs with greater flexibility in how TA is delivered and ensure high-quality TA, and in accordance with 34 CFR 75.127, individual States have the following options: (1) Participating as a member of a multi-State consortium; or (2) applying directly for funds as a single State.
