Lesson 3 Summary

Key Points:

  • The most important vehicle for school districts receiving ED Impact Aid funds is the annual application process, due no later than January 31 of each year.
  • When identifying federally connected children in their enrollment, districts can count the number of children by conducting an annual survey of parents or by conducting a source check, meaning providing the installation or employer with a list of children it believes are federally connected and having those entities verify the status.
  • Federal funding for Impact Aid varies by program.
