2021-2022 Special Project Funds for Parent Resource Centers- Product Application & Personnel Application


The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE), Division of Special Education and Student Services (SESS), and Office of Specialized Education Facilities and Family Engagement (SEFFE) recognize the impact that a well-established special education parent resource center (PRC) can have on insuring that parents are informed of their rights and responsibilities related to the special education processes outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004) and the Regulations Governing Special Education Programs for Children with Disabilities in Virginia (the Virginia Regulations) and, as such, have a direct impact on increasing outcomes for students with disabilities. Therefore, the VDOE has set-aside a limited pool of funds, up to $8,000 regionally (at least three PRCs/school divisions working in collaboration) and $4,000 for an individual PRC, to assist PRCs in developing and implementing activities centered on students and families of students with disabilities. The local school division making the application must accept responsibility for being the fiscal agent for the resulting award of funds. If the funds being sought are for a regional PRC activity, only one application is required from the school division that will serve as the fiscal agent and provide oversight for the funding administration and reimbursement requests.
