Emergency Impact Aid

The Temporary Emergency Impact Aid for Displaced Students program awards grants to eligible applicants to enable them to make payments to Local educational agencies and Bureau of Indian Education-funded schools for costs incurred as a result of educating public and non-public school students displaced by qualifying natural disasters 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).

Funds for this program were made available through the Bipartisan Budget Act in 2018 and the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disasters Relief Act of 2019. Those funds were made available to address the impacts of qualifying natural disasters that occurred in 2017, 2018, and 2019. The Department is not funding new program applicants at this time.
