Title VI, Part A - Funding Transferability

Title VI, Part A, Subpart 2 - Funding Transferability for State and Local Education Agencies makes special provisions for LEAs that have not been identified for Title I, Part A School Improvement. The law allows these LEAs limited flexibility to target federal funds to programs that most effectively address their unique needs. Such LEAs may transfer up to 50 percent of the non-administrative funds allocated to them under Title II, Part A; Title II, Part D; Title IV, Part A; or Title V, Part A, to allowable uses under one of more of the following programs: Title I, Part A; Title II, Part A; Title II, Part D; Title IV, Part A; and Title V, Part A. An LEA identified for school improvement may transfer up to 30 percent of its non-administrative funds allocated under the same programs. Funds may be transferred into Title I, Part A, but not from Title I, Part A. This law is a component of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
