Initial Payments and Continuing Resolution for FY 2022

Many LEAs are asking when they can expect to receive an initial FY 2022 Impact Aid payment.

The Department of Education is operating under a continuing resolution for FY 2022. The current continuing resolution expires February 18, 2022.

A continuing resolution is legislation enacted by Congress to allow government operations to continue until the regular appropriations are enacted.  The Department has received a small percentage of what it is likely to receive for FY 2022 in order to make initial payments.

Because the full appropriation is not available, we are currently making payments only to LEAs who need Impact Aid funds to meet operational expenses. If your LEA requires an initial payment before March 2022, please submit an Early Payment Request in the IAGS.
