American Rescue Act PlanOn March 11, 2021, the President signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). ARPA makes available $122.8 billion nationally in a third round of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP-ESSER) funds, of which USDE must use $800 million to provide homeless children and youth with wrap-around services and assistance to attend school and participate fully in school activities.
• Within 30 days of receipt of funds, LEAs shall develop and make publicly available on the LEA’s website, a plan for the safe return to in-person instruction and continuity of services. Before making the plan publicly available, the LEA shall seek public comment on the plan and take such comments into account in the development of the plan.
• If an LEA has previously developed a plan for the safe return to in-person that meets these requirements, such plan shall be deemed to satisfy the requirements of the Act.
