ESSER III Liquidation Period Extension Letter from U.S. Department of Education

On May 13, 2022, the U.S. Department of Education published a letter to the AASA, The School Superintendents Association that clarified the period of performance deadline for the ESSER III funding and noted the potential for approval of late liquidation and liquidation extension requests for up to 18 months after September 30, 2024. School Business wanted to share the letter from the U.S. Department of Education. However, at this time, we do not have any information as to the process for requesting these extensions or any other guidance to share on this matter. As we get closer to the expiration date for the ESSER III funds in September 2024, we will be sure to provide further information to interested PSUs.

Shift from 90 to 120 Day Liquidation Period for Federal Funds

As the letter from the U.S. Department of Education notes, the Uniform Guidance was updated to extend the liquidation period for Federal grants from 90 days to 120 days (2 C.F.R. 200.344). This updated liquidation period timeline applies to all Federal grants issued by the U.S. Department of Education after November 30, 2020 (not those issued by NCDPI as of that date). As such, the following grants will still have a 90-day liquidation period:

  • ESSER I Grants (PRCs 163, 164, 165, 166, 167, 168)
  • GEER Grants (PRCs 169, 170)
  • FY 21 Federal Grants (Title I, IDEA, etc.)

The following grants will have a 120-day liquidation period:

  • ESSER II Grants (PRCs 171, 172, 173, 174, 175, 176, 177, 178)
  • ESSER III Grants (PRCs 181, 182, 188, 189, 190, 191, 192, 193, 194, 195, 196, 197, 198, 201, 202, 204, 205)
  • ARP ESSER III Homeless Grants (PRCs 183, 184)
  • APR IDEA Grants (PRCs 185, 186, 187)
  • FY 22 and later Federal Grants (Title I, IDEA, etc.)

If you have questions about the new liquidation period requirements, please contact John Keefer at John.Keefer@dpi.nc.gov.
