early intervention services in order to meet Part C’s
nonsupplanting requirements in §303.225.
Comment: One commenter requested, for clarity, that the
word “method” in proposed §303.511(b), regarding methods
for establishing financial responsibility and providing
early intervention services, be replaced with “formal
interagency agreement or other written method.”
Discussion: Proposed §303.511(b), redesignated §303.511(a)
§303.511(a)(1) make clear that “method” refers to the
manner in which a State ensures the fiscal responsibility of each agency for paying for Part C services, which could include a State law, regulation, signed interagency or intra-agency agreement, or other appropriate written
method. Adding the phrase “formal interagency agreement or
other written method” to the regulation could appear to
limit the options a State has for meeting these requirements or indicate a preference for the method to be used.
