Help MCPS Receive Critical Impact Aid Grants
Impact Aid programs and grants are designed to assist local school districts that enroll federally connected students. The grants from these programs become part of the MCPS general operating budget and support instructional activities. To qualify for Impact Aid funding, MCPS must determine how many of its parents/guardians are in active duty with the uniformed services; employed on federal property; reside in federal or public housing; and/or are a foreign government military officer. MCPS uses the Federal Impact Aid Survey that is distributed to all families to collect this information. For each school-aged child in your household, please complete and return the survey as soon as possible. The survey is available on the MCPS website. Your participation is critical to ensuring that MCPS receives its fair share of federal Impact Aid grant funds. If you have any questions, contact the MCPS Division of the Controller at 301-279-3230.
