The IDEA Full Funding Act (S. 3213/H.R. 5984) would create a mandatory 10-year path to fully funding IDEA while the Keep Our Pact Act (S. 72/H.R. 764) would create a mandatory 10-year path to fully funding both IDEA and Title I of the Every Student Succeeds Act—critical programs for the students most in need.
Congress promised to pay 40 percent of the excess costs of special education services when IDEA was first passed, but has never come close; the federal share is now less than 16 percent.
Email your members of Congress and tell them to cosponsor and support the IDEA Full Funding Act and the Keep Our PACT Act.
