Successfully Coordinating Federal Program Funds with ESSER Funded Initiatives
The CARES, CRRSAA and ARP Acts provided significant federal funding with broad allowable uses of funds. While there is no supplement not supplant for ESSER funds under any of these Acts, other federal funding, including IDEA, ESEA and Perkins all have supplement not supplant requirements, some of which require that funds be supplemental to other federal funds. So the question remains how do you coordinate funding for ESSER initiatives in a way that allows other federal grant to contribute? This session will discuss the various supplanting requirements, general allowable uses, and eligibility requirements. We will also provide some examples and discuss not only different ways to fund various programs but also review questions that should be asked by the state and district to ensure allowability.
