OSEP Hosts National Summit and Launches New Attract, Prepare, Retain Resource Page

The 2020 OSEP Summit provided an opportunity by bringing together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event was held over three days and participants had the opportunity to register for each event individually or attend all three.  An archive of the event can be found on the 2020 OSEP National Summit webpage.  OSEP also launched a new Attract, Prepare, Retain Resources Page that provides research and resources for stakeholders to explore potential strategies, innovative approaches, and additional resources regarding this topic!

Program Areas

The program area pages were created to support OSEP grantees in conducting their work.

As authorized by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) supports discretionary grants to improve results for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities. These grants are organized into eight program areas, each with specific purposes and performance measures.

If you are an OSEP grantee and do not know what your program area is, you can check your grant information against the CFDA numbers using the link below or contact your project officer.
