Maintenance of Effort (MOE) The purpose of the MOE requirement is to ensure that LEAs provide the financial support necessary to make a free appropriate public education (FAPE) available to eligible children with disabilities. Generally, LEAs may not reduce the amount of local, or State and local, funds that they spend on the education of children with disabilities when compared to the preceding fiscal year.  MDE's Website is full of useful information regarding LEA Maintenance of Effort.
