Supplemental Funds Test requirement has been delayed until the 2018-19 budget year. The law is still in place that LEAs must utilize all Title I, Part A funds only to supplement the funds that would, in the absence of such Title I, Part A funds, be made available from State and local sources for the education of students participating in programs assisted under Title I, Part A, and not to supplant, such State and local funds.
