UPDATE - Formula Grants for School Improvement (Project SERV)


At your May 1, 2019 meeting, you approved formula grants for Project SERV which provides funding for local educational agencies (LEAs) in which the learning environment has been disrupted due to a violent or traumatic incident, to provide resources to respond to the event and re-establish a safe environment conducive to learning.


Funds for Project SERV have been appropriated to remain available for obligation at the Federal level until expended. Under the Immediate Services SERV grant the Department provides emergency, short-term immediate assistance to affected LEAs. At the discretion of the Secretary of Education, funding amounts and project periods may be identified (subject to the availability of appropriations) to reflect the scope of the incident and potential recovery needs.


This update alerts you that all monies have been distributed to the impacted districts as outlined in the May 1 policy change.
