CARES Act (H.R. 748) emergency relief funding for education

The CARES Act, signed into law on March 27, 2020, provides $30.75 billion in emergency aid to help early learning, elementary, secondary, and postsecondary institutions and students address the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Department of Education will distribute this dedicated funding through three independent programs: (1) the Governor's Emergency Education Relief Fund; (2) the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund; and (3) the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. Each program permits recipients to invest in a wide range of activities. Although there will be significant competition for the Act's limited resources, early childhood services may be eligible for funding through each of the programs. (author abstract)
