There is funding available to support your child’s learning needs.

Idaho families are facing many challenges as they are forced to rapidly adapt to changing circumstances in their children’s education because of COVID-19. Funding is now available to help Idaho children whose education has been impacted by COVID-19. Through the Strong Families, Strong Students program Idaho families are provided access to grant funds to help with their students learning.

Strong Families, Strong Students is a program funded by Idaho’s Coronavirus Relief Funds, which provides Idaho students access to grant dollars that can be used to purchase educational goods and services that their families decide their students need.

Who can apply? If you are a parent or guardian of an Idaho public, private, parochial, student(s) in grades K-12— impacted by a COVID-19- related full or partial Idaho school closure or the parent or guardian of a home schooled student who experienced a COVID-19- related employment disruption—you can apply for these funds.
