Educator Disaster Relief Payments


Thanks to the diligent efforts of Florida’s educators, Florida was the first state in the nation to reopen schools for in-person instruction. This ensured that all students were provided with a panoply of educational supports.

During the 2021 Legislative Session, Governor Ron DeSantis worked with the Legislature to secure $1,000 disaster relief payments for educators by appropriating funding through the General Appropriations Act (GAA). The disaster relief payments were provided to full-time Pre-K certified teachers funded by the FEFP, K-12 classroom teachers, and principals.
