State of Student Success Funding During COVID-19

RFA found that over one third of states running SFF/PBF/OBF models in FY20 either implemented a new hold harmless provision, extended a FY20 hold harmless provision that had been set to expire, or paused their formula for FY21.

In addition, RFA also explored whether states made any changes in recent months to align SFF/PBF/OBF models to racial justice. Few states heightened their focus on racial equity through SSF models. Some states communicated an intent to increase institutional focus on underrepresented minority students through SFF/PBF/OBF models, but none adopted new equity metrics for FY21.
