Federal Impact Aid

  • In early November, we will be sending home an "Impact Aid" form with students for families to complete and return to school.

    Every year the Bremerton School District must apply for Federal Impact Aid funds from the U.S. Department of Education. These funds compensate the District for the loss of local tax dollars from tax exempt federal property in the Silverdale and Bremerton area. The Bremerton School District receives approximately $300,000 in Impact Aid funding each year.

    The federal funds from our Impact Aid survey help all our students and are used for basic education programs districtwide. It is critical that we receive this completed form information from every household in the District.

    The school district only reports the number of students living with families who live on and/or work on federal property. We do not report information about individual students in the Federal Impact Aid form.

    It is important to complete all appropriate sections, sign and date the form.  Include your actual work location (building and address) as of November 1, 2022 only if you are a federal employee, contractor or work for private business located on Federal/Tribal property.  These records are kept strictly confidential and only used to apply for Federal Impact Aid. Please return your completed form to your student’s school.

    Thank you for your cooperation and support!
