Grants & Funding
For programs in the United States, there are federal grants available to help alleviate the set-backs in student learning caused by the pandemic. Here are three pockets of funding mainly being used by districts across the United States:
stands for The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. Districts can use this funding for any activity under the federal laws of education, including addressing learning loss through new resources and training staff.
stands for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief. This funding provides nearly $190.5 billion to elementary and secondary schools.
The American Rescue Plan
this Act is incorporated into the ESSER funding (becoming ARP ESSER), and districts have used this grant to implement professional training for staff, hire more teachers, and to create afterschool programs.
