Program Unit Funding (PUF)

What is PUF?

Program Unit Funding (PUF) is provided to approved Early Childhood Services (ECS) operators for children with severe disabilities/delays who require additional support beyond that offered in a regular ECS program. Funding is provided for individualized programming that meets the educational needs of children with severe disabilities/delays. PUF is available for a maximum of three years for each child who is at least 2 years, 8 months of age on September 1 and less than 6 years of age on September 1. Two years of funding may be utilized in Preschool, and those qualifying for a third year will receive services in their Kindergarten year.
