Title VIII - Impact Aid Program

Title VIII - Impact Aid Program of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) assists school districts that have lost property tax revenue

  • due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property, or
  • due to the enrollment of federally connected children.

The Impact Aid law assists school districts serving children residing on Indian lands, military bases, low-rent housing properties, or other Federal properties. The law also, to a lesser extent, supports school districts serving children with parents in the uniformed services or employed on eligible Federal properties who do not live on Federal property.
