Federal Grants

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed by President Obama on December 10, 2015. This bipartisan measure re-authorizes the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the nation's national education law.

ESSA builds on key areas of progress in recent years, made possible by the efforts of educators, communities, parents and students across the country.

For further information about programs funded by ESSA, see Federal Grants.
