Memo Text

Act 217 of 2022 appropriated $5,300,000 for the ESA Matching Grant Program.  Districts will receive matching grant funds for Enhanced Student Achievement (ESA) expenditures for evidence-based programs to improve the academic achievement of identified national school lunch students.  The program is limited to tutors, before or after school academic programs and pre-kindergarten programs.  Expenditures incurred from July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023, with the following codes will be eligible for matching grant funds:


Category Fund Function
 Before/After School Programs 1281 or 2281 1511
 Pre-K Programs 1281 or 2281 1105
 Tutors 1281 or 2281 1120, 1130, 1140, 1220, 1230, 1240, 1250

If the total statewide expenditures exceed the amount of funding allocated by law, funding awards will be calculated on a pro rata matching basis.  A matching percentage will be calculated by dividing the amount of funding available by the statewide total of allowable expenditures and applying that percentage to district expense in order to determine the amount of funds reimbursed to the district.
