On August 31, 2017, the Evidence-Based Funding for Student Success Act, or Public Act
100-0465 became law. Five previous grant programs are combined into a single grant program and distributed as evidence-based funding. Those grant programs are General State Aid, Special Education – Personnel, Special Education – Funding for Children Requiring Special Education Services, Special Education – Summer School and English Learner Education.
Per Public Act 103-0008, in FY 2024 there is an appropriation of $300 million of new funding for tier distribution to all organizational units. In addition, all organizational units and specially funded units will continue to receive their Base Funding Minimum. The FY 2024 Base Funding Minimum for organizational units is equal to the FY 2023 EBF Gross Total State Contribution and Property Tax Relief Grant funds (for applicable districts).
