A. System of Payments / Use of Insurance / Program Income

The State does have a system of payments for Part C services under 34 CFR §§303.203(b)(1), 303.500(b), 303.520, and 303.521 which may include use of public benefits or insurance, private insurance or family fees, such as a sliding scale. Any family fees are treated as 'program income' for purposes of 34 CFR §§80.25 and 303.520(e) and are not included in the State's determination of State and local expenditures for purposes of 20 U.S.C. 1437(b)(5)(B) and 34 CFR §303.225(a) and (b). Note: If the State has adopted new or has revised its existing policies and procedures regarding its system of payments, it must submit these new and/or revised policies and procedures under Item 3.a in Section II.A above.

B. Restricted Indirect Cost Rate/Cost Allocation Plan Information

Note: This section is being completed because the Lead Agency for the Illinois Early Intervention Program is not a State Educational Agency.

(Note: To be completed if Lead Agency is not a State Educational Agency)

Under 34 CFR §303.225(c), a lead agency may not charge indirect costs to its Part C grant unless the lead agency charges indirect costs through either-- (i) A restricted indirect cost rate that meets the requirements in 34 CFR §§76.560 through 76.569; or (ii) A cost allocation plan that meets the non-supplanting requirements in paragraph (b) of this section and 34 CFR part 76 of EDGAR.

Question Selected or Not Selected
1.  If the lead agency is not a State educational agency (as well as any outlying areas that have the Department of Interior as its cognizant Federal agency, even if an SEA) check the applicable status below (more than one check mark may be necessary) and enclose appropriate documentation for this Federal Fiscal Year.  
The lead agency has a final restricted indirect cost rate or cost allocation plan that has been approved by the State lead agency's cognizant Federal agency and is in effect for this Federal fiscal year (FFY) (ending on June 30, 2015). (Attach a copy of the approved restricted indirect cost rate agreement or cost allocation plan.) Not Selected
The lead agency has either a provisional or final restricted indirect cost rate or cost allocation plan that expires or expired on NA and the State is in the process of negotiating a new restricted indirect cost rate agreement or cost allocation plan that will be in effect for the period NA.**  The State lead agency will continue to charge or bill the Part C grant using the provisional or previously approved final restricted indirect cost rate or cost allocation plan until a new rate or plan is negotiated and approved by the State's cognizant Federal agency, at which point the State lead agency must make appropriate adjustments for applicable FFYs. The State acknowledges that a final restricted indirect cost rate may result in an adjustment of the final audited expenditures allowable to be charged to the Part C grant and the Department's approval of this FFY Part C application with an expired or provisional restricted indirect cost rate does not constitute approval of that rate as the final rate for the lead agency for this FFY. When a final restricted indirect cost rate is approved, the lead agency must submit to OSEP: (1) a copy of the "final" restricted indirect cost rate agreement; and (2) details of adjustments made to past GAPS draw downs in light of the "final" rate. (Attach a copy of the previously approved restricted indirect cost rate agreement or cost allocation plan.) Not Selected
No indirect costs are charged to the Part C grant. The total amount of the Federal Part C grant is used for allowable direct costs. Selected
Other, explanation attached. Not Selected

2.  Check, if applicable.

Under 34 CFR §303.225(d), the lead agency may not charge rent, occupancy, or space maintenance costs directly to the Part C grant, unless those costs are specifically approved in advance by the Secretary. The lead agency is requesting the Secretary's approval to charge rent, occupancy or space maintenance costs either directly or indirectly to Part C FFY 2014 funds. If checked, the lead agency must attach to this Application a description of the amount to be charged, all uses of the space, and the proposed method of charging.

**A "provisional" indirect cost rate is a temporary rate established for a future prospective period of time to permit budgeting, obligations, and payment of funds by awarding agencies until such time as the actual indirect costs can be determined and a final rate is established for the applicable period; provisional rates are subject to adjustment by issuance of a "final" rate based on actual indirect costs incurred for the period (usually the organization's fiscal year).
