Budget & Finance

Thank you to everyone who commented on proposals for Henrico County Public Schools’ portion of federal “ESSER III” pandemic assistance funds.

HCPS will receive $78.32 million as part of the third installment of the American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief, signed into law in March 2021. The school division will use the majority of its $78.3 million in ESSER III funds to meet critical student needs. The spending plan ultimately approved by the School Board and the Board of Supervisors incorporated several amendments to the plan that was initially posted, taking into account suggestions made by the public and other stakeholders. The PDF below, updated in October 2021, reflects those changes.
