COVID-19’s Impact on K-12 Students

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, K-12 education will be competing for fewer state dollars against other priorities like emergency health. For many schools nationwide, the recently passed federal stimulus package of about $270 per pupil will not suffice to fill the financial gap in K-12 education, leaving the teachers, students, and parents to pay the price.

As a growing number of K-12 schools are struggling to secure federal rescue funding, is doing its part to help make funding opportunities accessible to schools and other nonprofits.

According to Libby Hikind, CEO of GrantWatch:

“We aggregate government, federal, state, local, foundation, and corporation grants to help K-12 schools throughout the country access funding opportunities.

The disproportionate number of teacher layoffs across the USA has jolted us to take action and focus our daily efforts on locating grant funding opportunities for schools.”
