On Thursday, March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act was signed into law. It is a $1.9 trillion package of assistance measures, including $2.75 billion for the American Rescue Plan’s Emergency Assistance to Non-Public Schools (ARP EANS) program. These funds will remain available through September 30, 2023, for making allocations to Governors under the ARP EANS program to provide services or assistance to non-public schools that enroll a significant percentage of low-income students and are most impacted by the qualifying emergency.
Note: The ARP Act does not include an Equitable Services provision and this program is separate from the Equitable Services provision in the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER I) and Governor's Emergency Education Relief (GEER I) programs under the CARES Act.
