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. Services to non-public schools that enroll low-income students and are most impacted by the pandemic will be prioritized. To receive services or assistance, please complete the application linked below.
Note: The CRRSA 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.

Allocations - Final EANS allocations are now available. The allocations are shown broken down into the initial 17.4 million allocations, as well as the total amount available to each school if needed at 27 million. This includes 200,000 administrative designation and a 400,000 reserve fund for any unforeseen costs or needs.
Secondary Allocation Requests Process - As you work with our procurement team on utilizing your EANS funding, we will communicate regularly on where you are in regards to your initial funding allocation remaining. You will work with them to access any additional allocations you need from the 27 million total allocations amounts available.
Summer School and Unfinished Learning Staff Funding -As we have shared, EANS allows for use of grant monies for additional staff positions and increase in FTE of current staff outside of normal FTE to address unfinished learning due to COVID-19. We are working to comply with EANS requirements and set up a partnership with an ESD to facilitate the contracting of your staff who will implement this instruction and planning. We hope to have information by next week around the ESD contact and process for getting your staffing needs set up. We will update you as soon as we have new information available and are working as quickly as possible, as we understand the urgency.
Private School Office Hours for Summer - Along with other Federal Systems Teams, we will be shifting to once monthly Private School Office Hours, with EANS information at the end of these. Beginning next month, Private School Office Hours will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month (omitting the current additional meeting on the 4th Wednesday). If you have questions around EANS outside of these Office Hours, please contact the EANS team at any time. We have appreciated your partnership in support of Oregon’s private school students and communities- Thank You!
Sample EANS Purchasing & Reimbursement Agreement - 5/18
*APPLICATION WINDOW CLOSES APRIL 30TH*
The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) have finalized the Reimbursement Agreement that will be used by any schools that are approved for the EANS program that will be requesting a reimbursement. Please review this EANS Sample Reimbursement Agreement version to become familiar with the information that will be required to process reimbursement requests.
During the US Department of Education Webinar on 4/6, a significant clarification was made on reimbursements under the EANS Program:
EANS allows for reimbursements on or after March 13, 2020 and throughout the duration of its implementation. This means that schools can purchase the majority of allowable Services and Assistance on their own, then submit the receipts for reimbursement to ODE. We are currently working on the process for regular and ongoing submissions and reimbursements. We will share more on the process soon.
The US Department of Education Updated the EANS FAQs document on 3/19.
