Maine Uses a Risk Assessment to Monitor Federal Grant Programs

States are using risk assessments to monitor Local Education Agencies (LEAs) that are considered sub-recipients of sub-awards under this federal provision. Maine is one state that has developed a risk assessment to assess all of its federal grant programs, including IDEA. Its tool measures fiscal risk by assigning weighted numeric values to multiple measures impacting federal grant management, resulting in a total risk value. This state spotlight was shared by NCSI.
