Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER)
Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) grant funding is authorized in three pieces of legislation. As a result, the ESSER programs are administered by TEA as separate grant programs.
The ESSER I, CRRSA ESSER II, and ARP ESSER III grant programs run concurrently. During the overlap in periods of availability, grantees may expend funds from any of the grant programs.
The team at ESC Region IX is here to provide assistance and training on the ESSER planning requirements, grant application, reporting, and compliance monitoring.
