Funding is available to assist with outfitting your school so you can keep up with technological advances. Let us help you find the funding to keep your school safe and productive.
CARES ACT EDUCATION STABILIZATION FUND
Congress set aside 1% of the $30.75 billion allotted to the Education Stabilization Fund through the CARES Act for grants to States with the highest coronavirus burden. The Department will make these grants available to States most affected by coronavirus through two separate grant competitions.

These grant programs are being administered through the U.S. Department of Education and 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 are subject to different eligibility requirements.
The CARES Act includes three grant programs under the Education Stabilization Fund:
- Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund ($13.2 billion)
- Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEER) Fund ($14.25 billion)
- Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund ($3 billion)
- The deadline for the GEER program is June 1st and the deadline for the ESSER Fund is July 1st, 2020.
