A bipartisan, bicameral coalition of lawmakers in the U.S. Congress announced the framework for a $908 billion targeted, emergency COVID aid package. The package contains funding for many areas critical to our schools including:
- New aid for public schools
- New aid for state and local governments
- Additional funding for child nutrition and school meal programs
- Additional funding for broadband internet and digital infrastructure
Please contact your members of Congress and ask them to support this new COVID relief measure. Tell them that as schools continue to face unprecedented budget difficulties, they need financial support and flexible aid from the federal government to ensure that all students are receiving the education they deserve.
