Program Guidance for the Winter Release

Program Guidance for some of the federal programs included in the 2021–22 Consolidated Application (ConApp) Winter Release to assist local educational agencies (LEAs) in completing the ConApp. This Program Guidance is intended primarily for local educational agency staff who are involved in the completion of the ConApp using the Consolidated Application and Reporting System (CARS), but may also be helpful to anyone who is reviewing the ConApp.

The CARS is a web-based system used to apply for funding, collect and report ConApp data, and track categorical program expenditures and activities.
