Colorado's ESEA CARES Act Fiscal Waivers - Title IV, Part A

Notice of Approval for Title IV, Part A Waivers

Colorado recently applied for and received the authority to waive the following provisions for the 2020-2021 school year and FY 2020 Title IV, Part A funds:

  • Section 4106(d) of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA related to local educational agency (LEA) needs assessments for the 2020-2021 school year.
  • Section 4106(e)(2)(C), (D), and (E) of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA with respect to content-area spending requirements for Federal fiscal year (FY) 2020 Title IV, Part A funds.
  • Section 4109(b) of Title IV, Part A of the ESEA with respect to the fifteen percent spending limitation for technology infrastructure for FY2020 Title IV, Part A funds.

Districts do not need to apply to waive the Title IV requirements as CDE applied on the behalf of the entire state. The Post-Award Revision system can be used to adjust the Title IV budgets by districts that would like to use one or more of the waivers. Districts should maintain documentation related to the use of any of these waivers for reporting and monitoring purposes.
