$ 11.5 million going to school mental health resources, career support for Iowa

Source In the fall, there was a first round of GEER funding, that provided Iowa with $26.2 million. Gov. Reynolds used these funds to expand broadband access and increase internet connectivity.

“These additional resources will help schools expand services to address growing social-emotional-behavioral health needs and support the overall well-being of students affected by the pandemic. In addition, increasing financial assistance through the GAP Tuition Assistance Program will help more Iowans gain the skills needed for good-paying, high-demand jobs in Iowa, both today and in the future.”   The funding is being provided through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund (GEER II Fund) which is a part of a federal COVID-19 Act passed in December of 2020.

Ann Lebo, director of the Iowa Department of Education “While the true cost of this pandemic is yet unknown, we’re already aware of the devastating mental health effects on our young people,” Reynolds said. “Expanding mental health services in our schools is critical to their overall recovery. When we care for the whole child, we secure better outcomes for them and their families.”
