Department of Agriculture (USDA).


Collectively, these programs account for approximately $550 million in Federal funds and $400 million in State and local funds and constitute one of the largest Federal education programs administered by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).
The unit provides state-wide oversight of these Federally assisted programs in a variety of educational settings, which currently include all 115 Local Education Agencies (LEAs), 2 Federal Schools, 82 Charter Schools, 18 Residential Child Care Institutions, 4 private, non-profit schools and other SFAs, including facilities for physically disabled and behaviorally challenged students.
