OSEP to Host National Summit on Attract, Prepare, Retain on October 27-29, 2020

The 2020 OSEP Summit is an opportunity to bring together various stakeholders to explore potential strategies and innovative approaches to address this critical need. The virtual event will be held over three days and participants may register for each event individually or attend all three.  Additional information and registration can be found on the 2020 OSEP Summit Webpage.

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.
