As part of the Coronavirus Response & Relief Act, the U.S. Department of Education is accepting applications from educators to help in their continued coronavirus response and mitigation efforts. The Act provides a refresh of three CARES Act grant programs:

  • Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER II) Fund ($54.3 billion)
  • Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEER II) Fund: ($22.7 billion)
  • Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEERII) Fund: ($4.1 billion)

The grants are intended to support efforts by states, schools and institutions of higher learning to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus, but each has a different focus and is subject to different eligibility requirements. Learn more about those details by downloading this flyer.
