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:
- IAGS Sec. 7002 Application and Coronavirus Relief User Guide (MS Word)
- IAGS Sec. 7003 Application and Coronavirus Relief User Guide (MS Word)
The Sec. 7003 User Guide explains which portions of the application are subject to the new flexibility.
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.
