On August 31, 2017, the Evidence-Based Funding for Student Success Act, or
Public Act 100-0465
became law. Five previous grant programs are combined into a single grant program and distributed as evidence-based funding. Those grant programs are General State Aid, Special Education – Personnel, Special Education – Funding for Children Requiring Special Education Services, Special Education – Summer School and English Learner Education.
Per Public Act 102-0017, in FY 2022 there is an appropriation of $300 million of new funding for tier distribution to all organizational units. In addition, all organizational units and specially funded units will continue to receive their Base Funding Minimum. The FY 2022 Base Funding Minimum for organizational units is equal to the FY 2021 Base Funding Minimum and District Intervention Funds (for applicable districts).
