Service providers

 

Supplemental Special Education Services (SSES) are on-line $1,500 one-time grants for parents of eligible students served by special education that have been impacted by COVID-19 school closures.

We are looking for businesses and service providers to join the SSES marketplace where SSES students and their families will shop for these products and services.
