This afternoon, state legislators gave final approval to House Bill 1105: Coronavirus Relief Act 3.0, a $1.1 billon relief package that spends approximately $900 million in federal funding left over from the $4 billion previously provided to the State by the federal CARES Act. House Bill 1105 invests $115.9 million in education projects statewide, with $50.9 million allocated specifically for K-12 coronavirus relief items. Based on feedback from members, NCASA worked with lawmakers to use some of these remaining funds for critical investments in areas such as internet connectivity and personal protective equipment (PPE).
