Advocate for full funding for IDEA
​​The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Full Act (HR 5984/ S 3213) provides a glide path to fully fund IDEA. 

IDEA authorizes covering 40 percent of the additional cost States pay associated with special education. In fiscal year 2022, only 13.3% of the additional cost was met. It is critical that Congress acts now to meet the costs of supporting our students with Autism. 

Use this action alert to write to your Members of Congress now, while Congress is making these funding decisions. Be sure to add personal stories about how important special education is to you and your family.

Use this document, prepared by the IDEA Full Funding Coalition, to reference your state's shortfall per pupil. This number represents how much money your State is left to cover per student with a disability due to the Federal government not meeting the full promise of 40 percent. 

Thank you for your advocacy!
