Title VII Impact Aid: Designed to assist local school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt Federal property, or that have experienced increased expenditures due to the enrollment of federally connected children, including children living on Indian lands. The Impact Aid law (now Title VII of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) provides assistance to local school districts with concentrations of children residing on Indian lands, military bases, low-rent housing properties, or other Federal properties and, to a lesser extent, concentrations of children who have parents in the uniformed services or employed on eligible Federal properties who do not live on Federal property.School districts use Impact Aid for a wide variety of general fund operating expenses, such as the salaries of teachers and teacher assistants; purchasing textbooks, computers, uniforms, buses, and other equipment; after-school programs and remedial tutoring; advanced placement classes; and special enrichment programs. Any LEA that claims children residing on Indian lands for the purpose of receiving funds under section 7003 must establish Indian policies and procedures (IPPs) to ensure that the LEA meets the requirements.
