Federal Formula Grants: Education Programs for Disabled Children
Tim Ransdell

September 2003

This report first examines the structure of the three grants used to allocate the bulk of federal funding under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to states and school districts. It then reviews recent program funding history and, finally, it discusses the operation of funding formulas and applies various funding-change scenarios to illustrate alternative state allocations.
