Using COVID-19 Relief Funds for Agile Furniture

Did you know that there are COVID relief funds available for purchasing learning environment furniture?  Many of the manufacturers SBI works with have done extensive research into how furniture purchases become eligible under relief funding guidelines, ESSER funds for public schools, and EANS funds for private schools.  Agile furniture could qualify under these four allowable use categories:  providing mental and physical health services and support; addressing student learning loss, including improving distance learning engagement; improving school facilities to reduce risk of virus transmission and exposure to environmental health hazards (by allowing for easy physical distancing), and addressing the unique needs of disadvantaged populations.
