Carryover (Allotment Balances)

An LEA has 15 months - from July 1 of the year,  in which the funds are allocated through September 30 of the following year – to spend a federal grant award.  In most cases, if an LEA does not obligate all of the funds by the end of the fiscal year for which Congress appropriated the funds, it may obligate the remaining funds during the carryover period of one year (34 CFR 76.709) for a 27-month total period of availability.

Title I limits the amount of carryover to 15 percent of the total allocation.  An LEA may request a waiver of this carryover limit once every three years.
