Getting to know your

With billions of federal relief funding available to K-12 public and private schools as well as higher education institutions, here is a breakdown of the dollar allocations, timelines on when you can spend, and the solutions you can implement using federal funding to support learning across all learning environments.
Learn how the available federal funding is distributed for public/private K-12 schools and higher education institutions:
* GEER (Governor’s Emergency Education Relief), ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief), HEER (Higher Education Emergency Relief). The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act established the Education Stabilization Fund (ESF), allocating $30.75 billion to the U.S. Department of Education. The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act added on additional $81.88 billion to the ESF, and the America Rescue Plan (ARP) Act later contributed over $170 billion to ESF. The Emergency Assistance to Non-Public Schools (EANS) program is part of the GEER Fund made available under both the CRRSA Act and the ARP Act.
