The Temporary Emergency Impact Aid for Displaced Students program awards grants to eligible states for costs incurred during the 2018-2019 school year as a result of educating public and non-public school students displaced by Hurricanes Florence and Michael, Typhoon Mangkhut, Super Typhoon Yutu, and wildfires, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions occurring in calendar year 2018 and tornadoes and floods occurring in calendar year 2019 in those areas for which a major disaster or emergency is declared under section 401 or 501 of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Act (42 U.S.C. 5170 and 5190). Thankfully, the state of Indiana did not directly experience any qualifying natural disasters during this calendar term, however schools serving those displaced by these events may still qualify. A complete list of qualifying disasters and emergencies can be found HERE.
Indiana schools believed to be currently eligible for Temporary Emergency Impact Aid funding from the USDOE are invited to complete the linked application(s) and submit to the INDOE for review. LEA applications and Non-Public school applications must be completed and submitted on or before Friday October 18th, 2019 at 3:00pm. Completed applications should be returned to Gina Woodward – Homeless Education Specialist – email@example.com.
