What is CARES, CSSRA, and American Rescue Plan Funding?
In 2020 and 2021, the federal government approved funds to be dispersed to schools as a response to the impact of COVID-19 on education.
What Can this Funding Be Used For?
The CARES Act allows schools to use funds to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. Additionally, the CRSSA Act allows funds to be used for address learning loss and preparing schools for reopening. The American Rescue Plan provides $500 billion that can be used in part to support young people during out-of-school time.
How Does This Apply to Physical Activity Programs?
Physical activity is more important now than ever before. Due to COVID-19, implementing physical activity programs and physical education has been challenging, but evidence-based curriculum and COVID-response products can make physical activity safe and fun again.
