American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) and Education Jobs
Congress passed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), which included funds available to Minnesota schools. Minnesota received more than $1 billion in education-related funding. The three largest funds are the State Fiscal Stabilization Funds ($816.7 million); Individuals with Disabilities Education Act ($205.4 million); and the Title I, Part A ($94.7 million). Most of the funds have been expended and there is no new money to be allocated. The state also received $169.2 million under the Education Jobs Fund.
