The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 dedicated funds to the the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (EESER) grant. The intent of this grant is to provide education funding to address needs from the COVID-19 pandemic and support the safe reopening and operation of schools. 

Two plans are being developed. These plans are linked below as they become available and will be reviewed and revised (if necessary) every 6-months.
