Ready to advocate for IDEA full funding? We've created these helpful invoices for you to fill out for your district. You will have best results with the invoice template using a PC. We have heard issues about using the template with a Mac. Please contact Noelle Ellerson Ng (nellerson@aasa.org) or Kat Sturdevant (ksturdevant@aasa.org) with any questions/accessibility inquires.



Resources to Get Started 

There are two ways for you to get this information to your members of Congress. Both require you to download and complete your IDEA invoice. Instructions for accessing and completing the invoice are on the first sheet of each template. 

  • Emailing Your Member of Congress Directly: If you have a direct point of contact or a relationship with the office, email the person directly and attach your completed invoice. 
  • Use the AASA Legislative Action Center to Email Your Full Delegation:  In the AASA legislative action center, once you enter your street address and zip code, it will take you to a template email that is addressed to both your senators and your house representative. There is a pre-populated email. You can customize as you see fit, and there is only ONE specific edit you need to make: in the third paragraph, make sure to replace {INSERT INVOICE DOLLAR AMOUNT} with the total you generated from your invoice.
