ESEA & IDEA Extension of Project Periods
Effective for the 2018-2019 fiscal year, the FY 2019 ESEA project period was extended from 12 to 15 months ending September 30, 2019. All funds are to be encumbered by that date and the liquidation period for the FY 2019 ESEA grant year is 15 days. Therefore, all funds encumbered by September 30, 2019 must be paid by October 15, 2019. This was communicated in the August 14, 2019 Broadcast. Any carryover funds will need to be spent in the 12 month period of October 1- September 30th.
The announcements section of EWEG states that IDEA grant funds will also have a 15 month period of obligation until September 30, 2019 and a 12 month period for carryover funds. It is anticipated that a broadcast will be forthcoming shortly in this regard.
It is also anticipated that these periods will apply for future grant years.
