It’s Impact Aid time! Federal Impact Aid is an education grant program that provides funds to school systems that are financially burdened or impacted by Federal Activity populations. Your students should be brining forms to complete and return to the school. You may receive an e-mail that will have a link to this survey, and you can submit the form digitally. Please make sure to turn this form in within a timely manner. These federal funds go toward operating costs of the schools overburdened with increased attendance as the result of Federal activities and loss of local revenues due to the tax-exempt status of Federal properties.
