Impact Aid Parent-Pupil Survey
Please make sure to return the yellow form that was sent out earlier in the week.
What is Impact Aid?
Impact Aid is a Federal education program that reimburses school districts for the lost revenue and additional costs associated with the presence of nontaxable Federal property, including military installations; Indian Trust or Treaty lands; Federal low-rent housing facilities; and national laboratories, Federal dams, national parks and other Federal buildings or lands. School districts containing such property are known as “federally impacted school districts.”
Why is Impact Aid important?
Most public school districts are funded in large part by local revenue, primarily local property taxes on homes and businesses and other local fees. Funding is limited for federally impacted school districts because Federal property – and the housing, businesses and other facilities located on that property – are tax-exempt. This means the Federal government’s land does not contribute to the costs of running a school district, including the cost of educating students associated with the land. Impact Aid is “Uncle Sam” paying his taxes – if it did not exist, local taxpayers would be burdened to make up the difference or students would have to go without the resources and opportunities the funding provides.
