Snapshot of federal funding

The federal government provides funding to schools through its primary agency, the US Department of Education (USDOE).

The primary sources of federal education funding programs for states and school communities and the primary purpose of each program are:

1. Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)
Helps schools with economically disadvantaged students

2. Law on the Education of People with Disabilities (IDEA)
Supports children with disabilities

3. Emergency / Critical Needs
Aid packages to support a wide variety of urgent needs

Federal funding comes from two types of grants, and different rules apply to how the funds are used:

• Formula grants
Determined by Congress; States are allocated, then the funds are given to school communities

• Freely selectable grants
Awarded through a competitive state and school community grant application process
