Dear District Administrators,
In a cross-agency effort, DPI has created the COVID Response and Relief Planning Recommendations webpage, a resource page to assist districts in being thoughtful and planful in the use of the one-time funds for COVID relief. Each category has a drop-down box populated by subject-matter experts and vetted by federal fiscal-monitoring experts as allowable costs under federal relief funds. The list is alphabetized and highlights exemplars of districts maximizing available funds to address a need or of external resources proved to be effective. The resource page is best used in conjunction with district needs assessments for planning purposes. The webpage will be evolving and updated routinely.
