Located in the Consolidated Accountability and Support Application (CASA), the Consolidated Application for Federal ESEA Title Programs:
- Is where public agencies (e.g., districts, AEAs, state agencies) complete and submit required program information, such as:
- Nonpublic consultation agreements,
- Annual fund “transfers” between allowable sources (transfers are in use only and must always be coded to their original source),
- Annual program applications,
- Quarterly reimbursement claims, and
- End-of-year reports.
- Simplifies and seeks to reduce burden by unifying:
- All nonpublic consultation agreements.
- Nearly all program application due dates.
- All reimbursement claim periods and payments.
- Requirements for general ledgers.

Reimbursement Claims Due Each Quarter
Each quarter, the public agency must submit a reimbursement claim (supported by a year-to-date general ledger) for each funded program. Zero-dollar claims are permissible but discouraged. The public agency's head administrator or school business official must submit the claim by the last day of the claims period. Failure to do so will result in the claim being moved to “Failed to Submit an Approvable Claim,” which impacts the agency's risk assessment and may result in additional monitoring requirements.
The reimbursement periods are as follows:
Last Day to Submit “Not Started” and “In Progress” Claims
|Last Day to Submit Corrections to "Action Required" Claims (Claim Must Have Been Submitted by Last Day of Claims Period)|
|Quarter 1: November 1 - 30||November 30||December 10|
|Quarter 2: January 1 - 31||January 31||February 10|
|Quarter 3: April 1 - 30||April 30||May 10|
|Quarter 4: June 1 - July 15 (expenditures MUST be made by June 30th)||July 15||July 25|
