With the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER), students will have the opportunity to gain access to more out-of-school activities than ever.
What is ESSER?
With the signing of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act in December 2020, an additional $54.3 billion is being allocated to ESSER.
With these funds, schools are able to address learning loss expenses, preparations for reopening, repairing infrastructure, and more. For a complete list of allowable expenses, visit your state’s Department of Education website.
