Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Funds

  • Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) is a federal program that provided funding to states and school districts during the COVID-19 pandemic. This emergency funding is designed to help address educational issues arising from the pandemic by providing schools with resources to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the COVID-19 crisis. These funds provided crucial support to students most impacted by the pandemic. 

    The ESSER funding program is available until September 2024.
