Out of the amounts awarded through the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260), $10,000,000 of such funds shall be used to create a grant program to prevent further academic harm caused by COVID-19 related school closures.  Through this program, school divisions may apply for grants of up to $500,000 to establish robust summer school programs."
