I. STATE APPLICATION AND FUNDING
A. Eligibility of an SEA
A1. Who is eligible to receive a MEP grant?
Only an SEA may receive a MEP grant from the department. However, local educational agencies (LEAs), other public agencies and private nonprofit organizations, including institutions of higher education, may participate in the program through subgrants or contracts with SEAs.
A2. May two or more SEAs jointly apply for a MEP grant?
Yes. Section 1302 of the statute provides that either an individual SEA or a combination of SEAs may apply for a MEP grant. If SEAs apply jointly, one of the SEAs should be designated as a principal contact with the department for program and fiscal matters related to the proposed project. A joint application should describe how SEAs will cooperate on the migrant education project and outline each SEA's responsibilities.
