Advocacy Update: Legislature Releases Bullet Aid Resolutions


June 20, 2019

Both the Senate and Assembly released their respective houses' Bullet Aid allocations for school districts, libraries and non-profits.

These allocations are not based on state aid formulas, but rather, are negotiated by individual legislators and legislative leadership. Not all school districts receive Bullet Aid. This year, a pot of money was also set aside specific to fund school-based health centers.

The district-specific allocations can be viewed below.
