Entitlement Grant Draw Down Period

Last year, most states (CT included) returned thousands of dollars in entitlement money to Washington. As you can imagine, sitting in a congressional hearing room and asking for more money for Title II D (EETT) when your state has returned unspent prior year's money, does not bode well. As part of a national effort to dramatically reduce the amount of IID money returned to our federal friends, we ask simply that you draw down and spend whatever money you have left, on or before June 30th. (I've called all districts that had an unspent balance of more than $1,000.) If you have questions, please check with your business manager to find out if you have any grant balances.
