From 1992–2004, the Center for Special Education Finance (CSEF)—a national technical assistance center funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs—addressed fiscal policy questions related to the delivery and support of special education throughout the United States. A major undertaking for CSEF was the Special Education Expenditure Project, a comprehensive, nationally representative study of special education spending.
