Who is Eligible?

An LEA is eligible for an SRSA award if:

1a. The total number of students in average daily attendance at all of the schools served by the LEA is fewer than 600;

OR

1b. Each county in which a school served by the LEA is located has a total population density of fewer than 10 people per square mile;

AND

2a. All of the schools served by the LEA are designated with a school locale code of 41, 42, or 43, as determined by the Secretary of Education;

OR

2b. The LEA is located in an area determined to be “rural” by a governmental agency of the State

To find your LEA’s locale code, visit the National Center for Education Statistics’ locale lookup tool on their website. For more information on how locale codes are determined, visit the NCES Locale Boundaries User Manual.

To see how SRSA differs from RLIS, view the SRSA-RLIS Comparison Table .

NOTE: If an LEA is a member of an educational service agency (ESA) that does not receive SRSA funds, but the LEA meets the SRSA eligibility requirements, then the LEA is eligible to receive an SRSA grant.
