Performance and Reporting

Education Stabilization Fund Transparency Portal 

Established in November of 2020, Covid-Relief-Data.ed.gov disseminates information about the three primary Education Stabilization Funds (ESF) programs managed by the U.S. Department of Education and authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA): the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund, the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund, and the Higher Education Emergency Relief (HEER) Fund. This publicly accessible site reports how the ESF funds were allocated by the U.S. Department of Education and used by states, outlying areas, local educational agencies (LEAs), and institutions of higher education (IHEs) to alleviate the impact of COVID-19. The site aims to provide the public with transparent, searchable, and understandable data. 

Covid-Relief-Data.ed.gov synthesizes data from several sources to improve transparency of federal spending on elementary and secondary education and higher education for the public on Education Stabilization Funds.

Annual performance report and Maintenance of Effort (MOE) data are included on the Transparency Portal. 

ESSER Annual Reporting

All grantees are required to report on ESSER funds received under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act; the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act; and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. Grantees must submit an annual report describing how the State and subrecipients used the awarded funds during the performance period.

Similar to CARES Act Year 1 annual reporting, grantees will use the Annual Report Data Collection Tool to submit the State report. For information on account registration and when the tool will open for data entry, please visit https://covid-relief-data.ed.gov/grantee-help.
