Senate releases money for summer programs and forest fire recovery |  Capital Bureau

Here are details of the $250 million for summer programs: Summer programs • For high school students behind on their credits for the past two academic years because of the coronavirus pandemic, $71.9 million, with school districts putting up a 25% match from federal pandemic aid they will get separately. Districts qualify for money if half of high school students participate.

More than $1.1 million in wildfire recovery money will be shared by Marion County, the cities of Detroit and Gates, and the Idanha-Detroit Rural Fire Protection District, which lost its truck in the Beachie Creek wildfire. “The past year has been hard on our students and their families. They are struggling with school… and their mental health. Today, we made sure they have opportunities to learn and play this summer,” Senate President Peter Courtney, D-Salem, said in a statement after the vote. “We also passed funding for communities dealing with homelessness and last year’s fires.”

“The process of rebuilding from fire is just beginning, and this money will provide the first step to help families get their lives back,” Senate Republican Leader Fred Girod of Lyons, who lost his home in the fire, said afterward. “I look forward to securing more funding for my community.” One of the bills adds $250 million for summer educational and recreational programs. It also has $3.7 million for 11 local governments to repair damage from the Labor Day wildfires and $20 million for seven local governments to fund shelters — known as navigation centers — that help people find housing and other services. One of those centers is in Bend, which is getting $2.5 million.

• For summer recreation activities, $40 million that the Oregon Community Foundation will award in grants to public agencies and nonprofit groups, such as the YMCA and Boys and Girls Clubs. • For parents whose children have disabilities, suffer from trauma or are at risk of placement into the child welfare system, $1.2 million. The state estimates this program could support about 600 parents. • For preschool programs, $12 million, plus $11.2 million in federal funds, for one-time activities this summer.

• For child care, $30 million, plus $10 million in federal funds. • For students from kindergarten through fifth grade, $93.7 million, with school districts putting up a 25% match, for academic or other enrichment programs. Districts will get money based on the distribution formula for regular state aid, but more weight will be given to students at the poverty level. Assuming a cost of $1,800 per student, the state estimates that up to 70,000 children could benefit.
