Agency: Education Dept.-DoEd (Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, OESE); Program: FY 2017 Impact Aid Section 8002 grants (CFDA Number: 84.041); Eligibility: Schools, governments, school districts, colleges and nonprofits; Funding: TBA (no match required); Deadline: Feb.1.
Summary: Even though the funding is allocated on a formula basis, distressed school districts must still apply in order to receive the money. This is the DoEd grants program for schools in communities with military bases, Indian reservations and other federal property. The grants replace the local tax revenues lost because of the significant federal presence in the communities that otherwise would not have the tax funds for school projects.
Funding: The final funding level hasn’t yet been determined, officials tell us. The funding level is usually in the $60-million range.
