The Impact Aid Program is a federal program designed to directly compensate local school districts that have been financially impacted by federal activities. The program’s mission is to reimburse local school districts for local revenues lost due to the presence of federally owned, and therefore tax-exempt, property. This is an annual requirement. Impact Aid forms will go out on October 21st during HawkTime. These forms are confidential and are due back right away. The first 5 HawkTimes to have 100% submissions gets donuts for their class! Originals must be submitted- not scanned.
