Victory! Secure Rural Schools Program extended through 2023

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, signed into law by President Biden on Nov. 15, 2021, extends the Secure Rural Schools (SRS) program through 2023 and increases payments. First enacted in 2000, SRS supports public education and community services in rural counties located near national forests in 41 states and Puerto Rico. More than 9 million students—nearly 1 in 5—attend rural schools.

  1. Terrific! There are several.rural.schools that need renovations and new HVAC systems as well as larger cafeterias to stop the spread of the pandemic.

    1. YAAA! My mom started her teaching career in a rural school during WWII. And I started my teaching career in 1977 at South Rowan Senior High School in China Grove,NC. I loved my time there and she has students who are still living who remember her kindness. Love Rural Schools always. LJ Steele
