Michigan has been approved for nearly 390 million dollars in federal education funding.
The state will receive the funds under the US Department of Education’s Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds. That federal fund is $13.2 billion, and is being used to provide relief for schools around the country.
Michigan’s State Superintendent Dr. Michael Rice says “Schools can use the funds to meet a variety of current education needs, but must recognize that these funds are one-time revenues.”
Ninety percent of Michigan’s funding will be awarded to eligible school districts under the CARES Act.
