Use of program funds for unique program function costs.
An SEA may use the funds available from its State Migrant Education Program (MEP) to carry out other administrative activities, beyond those allowable under § 200.100(b)(4), that are unique to the MEP, including those that are the same or similar to administrative activities performed by LEAs in the State under subpart A of this part.

(d) Collecting and using information for accurate distribution of subgrant funds;
(e) Development of a statewide needs assessment and a comprehensive State plan for MEP service delivery;
(f) Supervision of instructional and support staff;
(g) Establishment and implementation of a State parent advisory council; and
(h) Conducting an evaluation of the effectiveness of the State MEP.
