American Rescure Plan (ARP) ESSER Funds
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III) provides $9 Billion to New York State, including over $38 million to Newburgh Schools. Purpose: Congress passed three stimulus bills that provided nearly $190.5 billion to the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund to help safely reopen and sustain the operation of schools in the current academic year and beyond to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on New York’s students by addressing students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs.
The plan is currently in development based on feedback received from stakeholders. A finalized plan will be posted here when available.
