Grant program rolls out to help special needs students


Gov. Abbott and the Texas Education Agency late last week announced the rollout of a grant program for eligible families of children with “significant cognitive disabilities and complex educational needs.” The $1,500 grants can be used to purchase educational resources and services through the TEA’s supplemental special education services program.

A total of $30 million was allocated, which could provide help for up to 20,000 students. To find out if your child is eligible, email the agency at or call 855-772-3839.
