Covid-19 Relief Funds for Families and Educators

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If you are struggling with the impacts of this crisis financially, emotionally, or physically, You Are Not Alone.  These are challenging times. But we cannot allow children to fall behind their peers. Our struggling readers need us now more than ever.

The IDA community understands all too well the burden this crisis has placed on families and teachers with its disruption of income, quarantine, and other challenges. That’s why we have established a national relief fund to help those hit the hardest by providing the following:

  • Computers, laptops, or tablets (for remote learning) for those who can’t afford them,
  • Educational software and other required learning tools,
  • Tutorial stipends for students who need one-on-one learning assistance, and
  • Family advocate stipends for those in need of special education advocacy services.

Applications for relief programs provided by our COVID-19 Relief Fund for Families and Teachers are now available. Please note: Instructions on completing the applications, as well as where to submit them are included in the PDFs. Make sure to read through the PDF fully before completing and submitting.
