California Department of Education is accepting applications to the Special Education: Extraordinary Cost Pool.

As part of the Special Education AB 602 formula, this program reimburses Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs) for extraordinary costs of single placements in nonpublic, nonsectarian schools (NPS) after 1997–98, and special education and related services for pupils residing in licensed children’s institutions (LCI). Single placement costs in excess of the annual threshold amount will be reimbursed, subject to available funds.

Funds shall be first available to fully reimburse extraordinary costs associated with educationally related mental health services, including out-of-home residential services for necessary small SELPAs (NSS), as defined in EC Section 56212. The threshold amount for 2022-23 for NSS is the lesser of $90,504.67 or one percent of the SELPA’s net entitlement for the 2019-20 fiscal year. For NSS ECP for Mental Health (NSS ECPMH) funding details, refer to NSS ECPMH web page.

If the total reimbursable amount exceeds the current year appropriation, all claims will be prorated. Note: In addition to the current year appropriation, any funds not used for Necessary Small SELPA’s Extraordinary Cost Pool for Mental Health Services are made available for this program, if needed.


Local educational agencies are eligible to apply. SELPAs that have extraordinary cost of single placements in NPS after 1997–98, and related services in LCI are eligible.
