The OmniVest team is keeping up to date with the Federal grants that have become available to the Schools due to the pandemic. ESSER I funds should be expended by September 2021; but can be transferred over to 2022 with a waiver, if needed. The OmniVest team will be in contact if funds still need to be expended or if a waiver is necessary. If the School has expended all ESSER I funds, it is time to discuss possible expenditures for ESSER II. The OmniVest Operations team has sent out information regarding ESSER II and narratives that are needed for the application. Please reach out to the Operations team when the School is ready to finalize a budget for ESSER II and we can assist with completing the application. Recent news has been shared about the preliminary allocations for ESSER III. This is a great opportunity for the School to have in its back pocket for the future and provides generous funding. Once the requirements, allowable costs and application becomes available, OmniVest will be in touch to begin the process for ESSER III funds!
