What Is Federal Impact Aid and MORE IMPORTANTLY

How Can It Help My Child’s School?


What is Federal Impact Aid?

  • Ordinarily, school districts receive funding from property taxes paid by individuals and local businesses.  Because property on military bases and other Federal property isn’t taxed, local school districts do not receive tax revenue from it.  Federal Impact Aid is money given to local school districts to help to make up for this loss of income. The funds go directly into the school district’s general fund for operations such as purchase of textbooks, computers, utilities, and payment of staff salaries.


How is Impact Aid Generated?

  • Each year, schools hand out a Federal Impact Aid survey to all children to take home to be signed by parents/guardians and returned to the school. Each survey returned by children of parents or guardians who are Active Duty military, Department of Defense/Federal employees, contractors and/or residents who live and/or work on Federal property, generates money which goes to the operating budget for local district schools.

  • Survey results are used to assess the number of federally-connected students enrolled in a district.  This number is reported to the U.S. Department of Education in the form of an application requesting Impact Aid.


When does this happen?

  • Surveys will be given to students each year in October. Each district will indicate the return date on the form.


Why is it important for each child to be counted?

  • To be eligible to receive Impact Aid, a school district must have at least 400 federally-connected students in their Average Daily Attendance (ADA) or federally-connected students must account for at least 3% of the district’s ADA.   This is why parents’ responses to the survey are so critical.  Underreporting excludes districts from receiving funds and places a financial burden on districts to provide educational services to students.  Each child counted generates revenue for the district.


Note: Additionally, the more federally-connected students the district can account for, the more likely individual schools within the district will be eligible to receive certain grants, such as the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) grant.
