FY 2022 Applications Open and Coronavirus Relief Act

The Impact Aid Program is pleased to announce that the Section 7002 and Section 7003 applications for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 are now available in the Impact Aid Grant System (IAGS). The deadline is Monday, February 1, 2021 at 11:59 P.M. Eastern time.  Late applications will receive a ten percent penalty on all payments arising from the application, so please file early.

On Friday, December 4, 2020 the President signed H.R. 8472, the Impact Aid Coronavirus Relief Act (the Act).  For FY 2022, the Act permits Section 7003 applicants the flexibility to use student count data from their reviewed prior year application, or apply as usual, using student count data from the 2020-2021 school year.  Section 7002 LEAs may submit the same reviewed application data used on the FY 2021 application, or apply as usual.

Instructions for taking advantage of this new option, including how to find a copy of your LEA’s FY 2021 application, are available below:

The Sec. 7003 User Guide explains which portions of the application are subject to the new flexibility.

Training Reminder

We will be hosting several trainings in the coming weeks. The upcoming “Ask An Analyst” sessions provide an open opportunity for LEAs to ask questions and receive assistance on completing the application.

Webinar on Indian Policies and Procedures Implementation

If your school district has an Indian Policies and Procedures (IPP) document, please join Impact Aid staff for a new training webinar on the topic of IPP implementation.  The webinar will be offered twice, on June 25, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern time, and on July 1, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern time.

The session is designed for school district staff responsible for ensuring that IPPs are implemented in compliance with the program regulations. Training will cover key regulations, best practices, and tools that can help.

While LEAs claiming children living on Indian lands that have been selected for a FY 2021 application review may find this presentation especially helpful, any district claiming children with Indian lands will also benefit.

Amended Applications Can Be Submitted Now

Does your FY 2021 Impact Aid grant application need to be updated?  It is a good idea to check your application to ensure all of your Federally connected students are properly reported.

If you need to make a change, you may amend your FY 2021 application from now until August 31, 2020.

We strongly recommend compiling your edits before you start the amendment. When you start an amendment, the Department of Education’s review process on your original application stops. The review process does not start again until the amended application is signed and submitted.
