How to Access Education Relief Funds to Support Music Education
The American Rescue Plan Act includes $126 billion for K-12 education. These funds can help support music education programs which may need additional assistance due to the pandemic and education budget shortfalls. In addition, the funds can also help more students participate in music and arts education. NAMM, the NFHS, and NAfME presented an interactive webinar to educate others on how much stimulus funding is given on the state level. The webinar showcased those who have successfully used prior stimulus dollars to support students and music programs, and identifies the people in your district who can help you make the case and access funds to support and sustain music and arts education.
