On November 29, 2021, TEA sent the following correspondence to notify recipients of the 2020-2023 ARP ESSER III Federal Grant that the final award amounts are available and the process for claiming the final award amount:
Final ARP ESSER III allocation amounts are now available on the TEA Entitlements webpage. Previously posted information regarding LEA initial two-thirds allocation, remaining one-third allocation, and total allocation amount has been updated to now reflect a slight increase in total ARP ESSER III grant funding received.
Grantees must start an amendment for the 2020-2023 ARP ESSER III Federal Grant Application in eGrants to budget their final amounts. Once the amendment has been initiated, the revised amount will appear on Schedule BS6001—Program Budget Summary and Support.
The deadline to submit amendments to claim ARP ESSER III final amounts is 5 p.m. Central Time, January 28, 2022. It is important to submit your amendment to claim the final amount, or you risk losing the additional funds altogether.
