ALLOCATION FORMULA
SRSA grant funds are allocated to eligible LEAs based on the following formula:

  • The number of students in average daily attendance, minus 50.
  • Multiply this number by $100.
  • Add $20,000.
  • If the total is above $60,000, this amount is capped at $60,000.
  • From the amount above, subtract the sum of the allocations received by the LEA during the prior fiscal year under:
    • Title II-A.
    • Title IV-A.

Please note: (1) this calculation provides an estimate only; the actual SRSA award amount may be higher or lower than the calculation, depending on the amount Congress appropriates for the program, as well as the number of LEAs nationwide that are eligible to receive SRSA grant funding in a given fiscal year; (2) not every eligible LEA will receive an SRSA grant, because there are instances where the allocation formula described above may result in an award of $0 (e.g., an LEA that received a particularly large amount of Title II-A or Title IV-A funds, such as $60,000 or more, would receive $0 under the formula); and (3) the LEA must apply in accordance with the application submission procedures in order to receive SRSA grant funds.
