November 2023 – News You Can Use

This month we are highlighting tips to prepare you and your local educational agency (LEA) for our upcoming 2025 application season.


Has your LEA conducted this year’s Impact Aid Survey? Whether using a parent pupil survey (PPS) form, source check, or Electronic Data Collection (EDC), choosing a survey date, and then conducting a survey is the beginning to your preparation for your Impact Aid application.

If you need help, check out our Section 7003 Overview and the How to Survey training videos, review the How to Conduct A Survey webinar slides, or contact your Impact Aid analyst directly!  You can find all of our Impact Aid staff state assignments at this link.

Impact Aid Grant System (IAGS) System Updates
IAGS Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)

As of August 29, 2023, to meet current cybersecurity requirements, the IAGS requires school district and state users to access the IAGS through an identity verified account.  If you need help with your account set-up, see this slide deck with detailed instructions and screenshots or our Frequently Asked Questions document for more information.  Impact Aid staff are unable to assist you with identity verification, password, or authentication issues.  The helpdesk is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be reached through or by phone at (844) 875-6466.

Account Deactivation

If you have not logged in to IAGS within the last 120 days, your system account is deactivated. You can request that the system administrator reactivate your account by entering your email address in the green box on the Get Help page. Once reactivated, you will be able to gain entry to the system through Login.Gov.

IAGS User Changes

Do you need to make changes to your IAGS users?  To remove a core user, submit your request to the analyst assigned to your state via email.  Provide the new user’s name, title, email address and phone number.  Once added, the core user will receive instructions for account setup by email.  To add or edit secondary user privileges, contact your LEAs core user listed within your LEA record.
