U.S. Department of Education Disperses Funds to Support Parents of Children with Disabilities

ED announced an additional $2.5 million investment to centers that serve a critical role for parents and families of students with disabilities across the nation. These supplemental grants to Parent Training and Information Centers (PTIs) ensure that all parents and families of children with disabilities, particularly underserved parents and parents of children who may be inappropriately identified, have the information and training they need to participate effectively in helping their children and navigating the special education system.  

Two additional grants have been awarded to new Community Parent Resource Centers (CPRCs) in Arkansas and New York. Learn more.
