Maryland Congressional Delegation Announces More Than $1.17 Billion in COVID-19 Relief for Schools and Universities Across the State

Jan 25, 2021
Press Release
Educators in State Can Use These Flexible Federal Funds to Support Online Learning, Low-income Students, and Protective Equipment as Needed

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Congressmen Steny H. Hoyer, Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, Kweisi Mfume, Anthony G. Brown, Jamie Raskin, and David Trone (all D-Md.) today announced more than $1.17 billion in federal funding for K-12 schools and higher education institutions across Maryland.

Funding comes from the bipartisan COVID-19 relief package passed by Congress in late December.

“This urgently needed relief will help provide students, educators and support professionals with more resources to improve learning and educational services, and help Maryland school districts cover the significant costs they have borne throughout this pandemic,” the lawmakers said. “Team Maryland remains committed to securing additional federal resources to ensure students and educators can keep learning safely.”

Funding includes:

  • K-12 Schools ($868,771,000): For the Maryland State Department of Education to support statewide education activities and for Maryland’s 24 school districts to accommodate the educational needs of students amid the COVID-19 pandemic, including direct support for low-income students, children with disabilities, English learners, racial and ethnic minorities, students experiencing homelessness and youth in foster care.
  • Higher Education ($309,025,964): To help institutions across Maryland cover lost revenue, support the transition to online learning and help students pay for food, housing, health care and child care expenses. (Additional funding dedicated to Maryland HBCUs and Minority Serving Institutions will be announced in the coming days.)
