The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSA Act) authorizes Oregon, through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER II) Fund to provide support to Non-Public Schools. This program is called the Emergency Assistance for Non-Public Schools (EANS) and authorizes the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to provide services or assistance to eligible non-public schools to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on non-public school students and teachers.
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act was signed into law on March 11, 2021. 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 provide services or assistance to non-public schools that are most impacted by Covid-19 and enroll 23% or more students from qualifying low-income households.
Note: The CRRSA and ARP Acts do not include an Equitable Services provision and these programs are 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.
