State Needs Projects

The State Needs Projects are funded with IDEA state level discretionary dollars to address needs that may not be adequately addressed with other resources within the state. The intent is that these projects serve families and practitioners through innovative and/or necessary topics relevant to the field of special education and that the projects provide a resource available to the entire state.
