(Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund) Expenditure Plan
In response to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the U.S. Congress passed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, which was signed into law on March 11, 2021. This is the third federal stimulus funding act in response to COVID-19, following the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA).
The ARP Act requires local educational agencies (LEAs) that receive ESSER III funds to complete an Expenditure Plan for how ESSER III funds will be used to address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as the opportunity gaps that existed before, and were exacerbated by, the COVID-19 pandemic.
