RRCP Mission: We partner with state agencies to increase their capacity to implement
the IDEA in order to improve outcomes for children with disabilities and their families.
The Regional Resource Center Program has been funded by the federal Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) to assist state education agencies in improving education programs, practices, and policies that affect children and youth with disabilities. Funding for this program ended on September 30, 2014. Several of the centers within the RRC Program will continue for several months through no-cost extensions and will continue to provide technical assistance. Please check the individual RRC centers (link above) to see the status for each one.
Services offered until the end of funding include:
- Specially designed technical assistance
TBA:OctSSIP Webinars - will be this fall, demonstrating tools on the 360 Web site and providing working sessions for states. More information coming soon.

NEW!! IRC Digest
The Information Research Cadre (IRC) designed this tool for RRCP state liaisons to share recent research resources with their state clients, and to create opportunities for states to connect with each otheer regarding common research needs. Inquiries come from states on specific issues that arise in the provision of services to students with disabilities and their families. The Digest includes the research question and a summary of the IRC response. Copies of responses are available for RRCP staff. States are encouraged to contact their RRCP state liaison if they would like copies of research identified in the Digest. SEE ALSO Products & Tools.
