Title VIII-Impact Aid

Basic Support Payments help local school districts that educate federally connected children.  These may be the children of members of the uniformed services, children who reside on Indian lands, children who reside on Federal property or in federally subsidized low-rent housing, and children whose parents work on Federal Property.  In general, to be eligible for assistance a local school district must educate at least 400 such children in average daily attendance, or the federally connected children must make up at least 3 percent of the school district's total average daily attendance.  Heavily Impacted Districts that enroll certain percentages of federally connected children and meet other specific statutory criteria, received increased formula payments under Section 7003(b)(2).
