On March 27, 2020, Congress signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) into law to accelerate learning.  As a result, $30.75 billion were allocated to the  Education Stabilization Fund (ESF) through the U.S. Department of Education.

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA Act), was signed into law on December 27, 2020, and provided an additional $81.9 billion to the ESF.  In March 2021, the allocation of over $170 billion in new resources to the U.S. Department of Education through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP Act) supports ongoing state and institutional COVID-19 recovery efforts.

The ESF is composed of three primary emergency relief funds: (1) a Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund which includes Emergency Assistance for Non-Public Schools (EANS) program, (2) an Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund, and (3) a Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEER) Fund.

 

 

While schools are delighted to hear this news, the allocation of these funds to targeted areas that will not only accelerate student learning, but also be sustainable in the long term, can be overwhelming.
