Immediate Aid to Restart School Operations (Restart)

Disaster Recovery Unit


Formula Grant


The Immediate Aid to Restart Operations (Restart) program makes awards to eligible State educational agencies (SEAs), which in turn provide assistance or services to local educational agencies (LEAs) and non-public schools.  The purpose of the program is to help defray expenses related to restarting operations, re-enrolling students, and reopening public or non-public elementary and secondary schools that serve an area affected by a covered disaster or emergency.
