Federal COVID-19 Education Funding


In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress has passed two significant stimulus bills that include funding for education. In March 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was enacted, and in December 2020, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act provided an additional $900 billion in funding for education.

Information on the education funding streams from these stimulus bills is provided on this page: the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF), the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund, ESSER II Fund, Governor's Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund and school nutrition.
