Federal Funding and Viinko: What You Should Know

With federal funding, you can provide the structure your students need: Viinko is here to help your students learn smarter.

 

Overview of the American Rescue Plan (ARP)

In March 2021, the federal government allocated $123 billion for K-12 education through the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. This stimulus was the third installment of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) fund, which totals to about $190 billion in federal funding for K-12 schools. In addition, the ARP allocates $2.75 billion to non-public schools with a significant percentage of low-income students through Emergency Assistance to Nonpublic Schools Fund (EANS).

What are the guidelines for ARP ESSER federal funding?

For public schools:

  • State educational agencies (SEAs) are required to reserve
    • 5% to address learning loss
    • 1% for afterschool programs
    • 1% for summer enrichment programs.
  • Local educational agencies (LEAs) must reserve at least 20% of their federal funds to address learning loss.
