Federal Stimulus Reporting

Reporting information for the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) Act, and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act.

Local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to report to the California Department of Education (CDE) on funds received through the CARES Act, the CRRSA Act, and the ARP Act. LEAs can report on these funds at the Federal Stimulus Funding Reporting Application and can utilize the Reporting Help Pages for guidance. The information below outlines the reporting application window and deadlines for each funding source. Some deadlines remain to be determined (TBD) and will be updated as they draw nearer.
