Title VIII: Impact Aid Program
The purpose of Title VIII is to disburse Impact Aid payments to local school divisions that are financially burdened by federal activities and to provide technical assistance and support services.
Title VIII provides financial assistance to school divisions affected by federal activities. Because federal property is exempt from local property taxes, Impact Aid helps to replace lost revenue that otherwise would be available to pay for educating children who live on federal property or whose parents work on federal property.As a part of the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2008 (ARRA), Impact Aid funds may be used for school construction activities that are consistent with a recognized green-building rating system.
