Maintenance of Effort

A local educational agency (LEA) may receive its full allocation of Federal funds for any fiscal year only if the State educational agency (SEA) finds that either the combined fiscal effort per student or the aggregate expenditures of the LEA and the State, with respect to the provision of free public education by the agency for the preceding fiscal year, was not less than 90% of the combined fiscal effort or aggregate expenditures for the second preceding fiscal year.
