On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Among its many provisions, the Act includes specific funding sources for Local Education Agencies. Specifically, Section 18003 of the CARES Act establishes the Elementary Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSERF).
The core purpose of the Elementary and Secondary school Emergency Relief Fund is to provide direct money to school districts and provide funding to support areas impacted by the disruption and closure of schools from COVID-19.
On December 27, 2020, the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 (CRRSA Act), Public Law 116-260, was signed into law and provided an additional $54.3 billion nationwide for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER II Fund).
The purpose of the additional funding is to provide direct money to LEAs to assist in safely reopening schools, measuring and effectively addressing significant learning loss, and taking other actions to respond to the impact of COVID-19 on educators, students, and families. Allowable uses include all possible expenditures under CARES ESSER I.
On August 12, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education announced its approval of New Jersey’s ARP ESSER State Plan. The approved plan reflects New Jersey’s commitment to supporting students, educators, and schools as they safely return to in-person learning while addressing the academic, social, emotional, and mental health impacts of COVID-19. As part of the development of the State plan, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) engaged with stakeholders throughout the State and we are grateful for this valuable input which helped to ensure that the State plan meets the needs of all of New Jersey’s students. For additional information, please see highlights of the approved plan.
