ESSER Bonus Payments 

In response to numerous questions as to the permissibility of providing bonuses to staff using ESSER and GEER funds, the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) has created an ESSER/GEER Use of Funds – Bonus Payments guidance document. The document examines whether bonus/stipend payments are permissible under the federal grants as well as under Kentucky law.
