American Rescue Plan Funding for Summer Enrichment Programs

The US Department of Education has launched an effort to support summer learning programs, along with groups representing governors, state school chiefs, and local superintendents. The Summer Learning & Enrichment Collaborative will support states and school districts as they develop out-of-school-time programs in the upcoming months. The collaborative is designed to help states use $1.2 billion in American Rescue Plan funding for summer enrichment programs. It will also provide support to districts, which must use at least 20 percent of their funding from the relief package to address learning recovery for students, especially those who are disadvantaged and have been most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. In addition to identifying and building successful summer programs, the collaborative intends to help bring nonprofit organizations, philanthropies, and other groups to support the work. The focus will be on students’ social–emotional and mental health needs, as well as their academics. The collaborative is also drawing on the National Comprehensive Center Network, a professional learning community supporting state and local education agencies, for support.
