The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund includes the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (March 27, 2020), the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act, 2021 (December 27, 2020), and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021 (March 11, 2021). The U.S. Department of Education awarded grants to states for the purpose of providing local educational agencies (LEAs) that receive funds under Title I-A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) with emergency relief funds to address the impact the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and continues to have, on students in pre-K-12 education.
