The C.A.R.E.S Act is also acting as a much needed boost for our educational system:
- Nevada will receive $108 million for Education Stabilization, an allocation based on its share of Title 1 for K-12.
- Nevada will also receive $26.1 million from the Governors’ Emergency Education Relief Grant.
- Nevada Higher Education will receive $73.3 million in assistance.
This is great news for Nevada!
One way the Washoe County share of the Emergency Relief Grant could be put to great use: is to support a part of the foundational piece of the physical layer of distance learning; to purchase some of the learning devices students will need.
