Louisiana Comeback (ESSER Fund)

As a result of a global pandemic and a 2020-2021 school year unlike ever before, $4 billion dollars are being infused into the state of Louisiana for PreK-12 academic recovery efforts. These funds are part of three stimulus recovery packages approved by Congress, and over 90% of these funds flow directly to school systems. Congress provided financial support for school systems through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. School systems are able to access these funds through a grant application called Achieve! This multi-year planning and budgeting process allows school systems to request additional funds to support the implementation of the new initiatives. ESSER funding can be leveraged for a wide range of activities “to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.” These funds can be used through September 2024, enabling school systems to continue critical work that will improve student outcomes for years to come.
