The Impact Aid for Children with Severe Disabilities Program reimburses Local Educational Agency (LEA) for money previously spent on military dependent children with severe disabilities.
Eligible LEAs will be contacted and requested to submit an SD 816 and an SD 816c for eligibility only if they have applied and have been approved to receive Federal Impact Aid under Section 8003 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended (20 U.S.C. 7703).
The Impact Aid for Children with Severe Disabilities Program (CwSD) is available to LEAs that have at least two military dependent children with severe disabilities that meet certain special education cost criteria.
Only children of active duty military personnel, including active duty Guard and Reserve, are eligible. This includes children with a parent who is an official of, and accredited by, a foreign government and is a foreign military officer.
Please carefully read the guidelines for LEAs Applying for DoD Impact Aid for Children with Severe Disabilities
