The provision would fix the current Impact Aid formula to remove the subjectivity from the program, and direct the U.S. Secretary of Education to release up to $14 million in unobligated funds to the Central Kitsap School District for the fiscal years in which it is deemed ineligible for these investments, according to a press release from Sen. Murray.

The Impact Aid Program provides federal funding for areas with high populations of military families and children living in tribal communities, the release states.
