WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Peter DeFazio on Thursday outlined the funding that schools in his Congressional District are expected to receive from the American Rescue Plan, including in Curry and Josephine counties.

In addition to funding for state and local governments, the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill provides funds for school districts across the country to aid in reopening safely for in-person learning, address the "learning loss" caused by disruptions over the past year, and help improve students' educational and emotional well-being.

“Our students are falling behind because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic—it’s imperative that we do everything in our power to ensure our kids, teachers, and support staff are returning to safe schools,” said Rep. Peter DeFazio. “I’m proud to have helped to secure the funding needed to procure PPE, install modernized ventilation systems, and acquire the necessary resources to make the return to school healthy and safe for everybody.”

DeFazio's district encompasses Curry, Josephine, and part of Jackson counties, and the lawmaker outlined how much each district is expected to receive from the bill:

  • Brookings-Harbor School District - $3,615,000
  • Grants Pass School District - $13,578,000
  • Rogue River School District - $2,737,000
  • Port Orford-Langlois School District - $2,554,000
  • Central Curry School District - $618,000
  • Three Rivers School District - $18,178,000

NewsWatch 12 is working to find out how much other districts in our area — those covered by Rep. Cliff Bentz's Congressional District — are likely to receive from the American Rescue Plan.
