States Get $40 Million in Stimulus Help

For states grappling with the complex and burdensome administrative and reporting requirements that go along with the federal stimulus package, help is one the way.

Proposed rules published to be published in the Federal Register on Monday would allow states to set aside a small portion of their stimulus funding from special education and Title I for administering those two programs. The percentages states are allowed to keep range from .1 percent to .5 percent, but amount to at least $200,000 for even the smallest states, and up to $1.5 million for the biggest.

States have been griping about the need for some more administrative resources for months. But districts may be less enthusiastic about the change, since they say they need all the stimulus cash they can get. (Read all about it in this story).

Find out how much your state gets in the chart at the end of this press release.
