A new report shows that New York State schools are spending federal aid slowly after COVID-19.

The New York Equity Coalition released a report that shows less than 10% of funding given to help increase learning following the pandemic has been spent since August of 2022.

After New York was one of the hardest hit states, it’s important that school leaders spend the money to help create a better future for students.


Students have struggled to bounce back after their learning was disrupted from the pandemic. Low income students have struggled the most when schools returned to the classroom. Many did not have access to tools needed for working remotely during the pandemic.

New York ranks 49th in the entire country for using federal funds at just 19%.
