Federal Funding Opportunities:

The federal government recently passed three stimulus packages totaling approximately $190 billion in funding for U.S. K-12 public schools, collectively known as Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER).

Learning A-Z offers effective, engaging solutions for K-5 students eligible for purchase with ESSER funds.



Between March 2020 and March 2021, the federal government passed three relief packages designed in part to support K-12 schools through the COVID-19 pandemic. Collectively, these three packages provided over $190 billion in aid to schools through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds, or ESSER. The funds from these programs must be obligated for use by September 2022, September 2023, and September 2024, respectively, with the largest funding source coming from the most recent legislation, known as the American Rescue Plan ($126 billion).

ESSER funds are divided into three sub funds, ESSER I, II, and III aligned with each of the relief packages. School districts may use the funds for any activity permitted under other federal education law, with the exception of 20% of ESSER III, which must be used to address learning loss through evidence based interventions that respond to students' social, emotional, and academic needs.

Learning A-Z offers a number of award-winning, engaging solutions that may be purchased through ESSER funds. Start your FREE trial today!
