Funding Construction Costs with ESSER

June 8, 2021

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST

Presented by Bonnie Graham


Course Description:

Generally state educational agencies and school districts have not used their federal grant funds for construction either because it was not an allowable use of funds or the navigation of federal rules was too complex so non-federal funds were utilized. However, ESSER brought about significant funding and requests for construction, an allowable use under the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. This virtual training will discuss the allowability of construction costs authorized under ESSER and the requirements in the Uniform Guidance and the Education Department General Administrative Regulations as they relate to construction costs including, but not limited to, prior approval, contractual requirements, and more.
