Temporary Emergency Impact Aid for Displaced Students (Emergency Impact Aid)

On Friday, April 27, 2018 the U.S. Department of Education notified states that districts serving students displaced by Hurricanes Irma, Maria, Harvey, or the California wildfires are eligible for Temporary Emergency Impact Aid, as appropriated by Congress in February 2018. Under the Emergency Impact Aid program, the U.S. Department of Education will award grants to eligible State Education Agencies (SEAs) on the basis of quarterly counts of displaced students. SEAs will then provide payments to eligible LEAs to assist with the cost of educating students who were displaced by a covered disaster or emergency during the 2017-18 school year and who were enrolled in public schools, including charter schools, and non-public schools. States apply for grants based on data that they collect from LEAs and Bureau of Indian Education funded schools that have provided educational services for displaced students. The LEAs and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools must submit applications to SEAs. The parents of non-public school displaced students are to submit applications to the LEAs.
