ESSER: You’ve Got Questions, We’ve Got Answers
In this webinar, we will provide an in-depth discussion of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Funds, including relevant (and quickly approaching) deadlines, statutory and regulatory requirements, and frequently asked allowability questions. While ESSER funds have provided unprecedented resources for States, districts, and schools, they have also raised challenges that are already being highlighted in audits and monitoring visits. In this session, we will address many of these challenges related to spending funds in a timely manner and what you can and cannot do with ESSER funds under the law. In addition, we will discuss how ESSER funds may be used to support innovative projects and alleviate COVID-19-related challenges, such as staffing shortages. We will also include time for Q&A to answer any specific questions you might have.
