SIA Update

Over the last couple of weeks we’ve shared updates with you about the next application cycles for the SIA. We are in the process of finalizing some guidance that details the nuts and bolts on what that means for plan updates and anticipate releasing more information in December. We’re concurrently moving through the SIA grant agreement process and working with you to receive all of the required documentation to fully execute grant agreements. If you have any questions about the SIA grant agreement process, please reach out to your Application Manager or

In this week’s message, we would like to take the opportunity to extend deep appreciation for your work and celebrate that the first round of SIA dollars disbursed yesterday to several districts and eligible charter schools! It has been no small feat to launch the SIA initiative and would not have been possible without all of your efforts. With the upcoming holiday we will be taking a break from our weekly message and will plan to resume our weekly message on Friday, December 4. We look forward to reconnecting with you all after this break to continue the work ahead in fulfilling the promise of SIA and its commitment to community, focal student groups, and centering student health, academic success, and deep equity.

This Week’s Frequently Asked Question

Q: My district or charter school has received our fully executed grant agreement, but we’ve not received our first disbursement of funds. What should we do? 

A: Once you’ve received a fully executed grant agreement, the freeze on your SIA funds will be lifted. At that point, you will be able to submit a claim in EGMs for your first disbursement of funding. Remember you can only submit a claim for the first 40% of the total allocation amount. If you have any questions or issues submitting your claim, please email
