Grant Description
Grants to Georgia school systems for residential programs benefiting students with disabilities. Funding is intended to assist with expenses related to the placement of students with disabilities in a private residential program or reintegration back from a residential program. The grant covers direct special education costs, related services, and room and board.

Funding will be awarded based on the following priority:

  • Children with profound and severe disabilities requiring residential services who are wards of the State.
  • Children with profound and severe disabilities requiring reintegration from a residential program.
  • Children with profound disabilities who need residential services.
  • Children with severe disabilities needing residential services.

Applications must thoroughly describe that a full continuum of services has been considered within the school system or regionally before a residential placement is considered. The system makes the referral to the private residential school selected to meet the student’s individual needs. Private residential schools must comply with the student’s IEP and Georgia Rules governing special education.

  • Private residential schools in Georgia to which students are recommended for placement must meet applicable standards and be on the approved state list.
  • Private out-of-state schools must meet the requirements of the state in which they are located. Documentation must be included with the application that the out-of-state school has been approved by the Special Education Department of the state in which the school resides.

The grant covers only direct special education costs, related services, and room and board. Any transportation costs must be covered by the system submitting the application.
