provides funding to the Secretary of the Interior for the coordination 
of assistance for special education and related services for Indian 
children from birth through age 5 with disabilities on reservations 
served by Bureau-funded schools. The Secretary of the Interior, through 
the BIE, then allocates this funding to Tribes and Tribal organizations 
based on the number of such children served. In order to allow the 
Secretary of the Interior to determine what amounts to allocate to 
whom, the IDEIA requires Tribes and Tribal organizations to submit
