The CRRSA Act sets aside $2.75 billion for the EANS program to address the impact COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on non-public school students and teachers.
The EANS funds are the only ones available to serve private schools; a local school district is not required to provide equitable services to students and teachers in non-public schools from supplemental funds received under the CRRSA Act’s Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER II Fund) or GEER Fund (GEER II Fund).
However, equitable services requirements continue to apply under the first CARES Act’s ESSER and GEER programs so check to see that you are receiving your allocation that is separate from the newest funding.
Caveat: schools cannot apply for both EANs and the new Payroll Protection Program (round two). Schools may apply for EANS if they received a PPP in the first round and choose not to do it in round two.
The U.S. Department of Education has developed a webpage for the EANS program.:
