Description:Impact Aid is designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt federal property; or that have experienced increased expenditures due to the enrollment of federally connected children, including children living on Indian lands. The Impact Aid law (now Title VIII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 or ESEA) provides assistance to local school districts with concentrations of children residing on Indian lands, military bases, low-rent housing properties, or other federal properties; and, to a lesser extent, concentrations of children who have parents in the uniformed services or employed on eligible federal properties who do not live on federal property.

Under Section 8002, Payments for Federal Property, local school districts that have lost a portion of their local tax base because of federal ownership of property are assisted. To be eligible, a school district must demonstrate that the federal government has acquired, since 1938, real property with an assessed valuation of at least 10 percent of all real property in the district at the time of acquisition. While this is a formula program, school districts must still submit applications in order to receive funds.

School districts use Impact Aid for a wide variety of expenses, including the salaries of teachers and teacher aides; purchasing textbooks, computers, and other equipment; after-school programs and remedial tutoring; advanced placement classes; and special enrichment programs.
