Carryover Limit


Title I

15% of base year allocation.

LEAs can receive 100% of their carryover once every three years by applying for a waiver. See below for more information.
Title II, Part A 100% of base year allocation.  

The amount carried over must be expended by the end of the following year. For example, if a portion of a 2012-13 allocation is carried over into 2013-14, an amount equal to the carryover must be expended by the end of the 2012-13 fiscal year.

All LEAs (in New York City and outside New York City) may apply for a waiver to the Title I carryover limit by making a request in writing to the Department's Title I School & Community Services office at 365 EBA, 89 Washington Avenue, Albany, New York 12234. NCLB requires that the LEA must be able to demonstrate that the request is reasonable and necessary.
