ARRA - SFSF Evaluation Report
The State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) grantees must provide a final evaluation report in the format and within the timeframe requested by TEA following the end of each project year (2009-2010, 2010-2011) for which they receive a notice of grant award (NOGA). Grantees are not in compliance with grant conditions and requirements until such time as this report is received by the TEA Project Administrator. Failure to comply with reporting requirements could result in the grantee being identified as high-risk and the imposition of one or more special conditions or enforcement actions.
2009-2010 Revised SFSF Evaluation Report
The 2009-2010 SFSF Evaluation Report was originally completed on November 30, 2010. TEA reviewed, aggregated and submitted the data to USDE in Section II.B of the Initial Annual Report under the SFSF Program for Texas. The Initial Annual Report is available on the ed.gov website.

However, LEAs should be aware that USDE may request additional information from TEA regarding SFSF, and TEA may be required to request the additional information from LEAs.
