early intervention services in order to meet Part C’s

nonsupplanting requirements in §303.225.

Changes: None.

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)

(1), directly incorporates the language in section 640(b) of the Act concerning obligations to ensure, and methods of ensuring, services. Section 640(b) of the Act and

§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.

Changes: None.

Comments: None.
