Funding Sources Available for Mental Health: Know Your Options

Finding Money to Support Mental Wellness in Your District

In 2024, mental health support is more critical than ever. Students need access to reliable mental health services, but for many districts, securing the funding to provide these services is challenging. Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds may be available for your district to utilize to support mental health.

View our webinar on-demand as Gaggle hosts a customer panel to discuss how districts can utilize ESSER funds for mental health services and enhance their current funding strategy. Learn how your district can maximize this funding and find additional avenues to provide your students with needed mental health support.
