Below you will find the AER Bulletin 07-2020, which provides guidance to assist eligible Soldiers with dependents in grades K thru 12th for home schooling costs for specific supplies and equipment up to $500 per family. Eligibility period for this special category of assistance will be retroactive back to 1 March 2020 and will remain in effect until rescinded by HQ AER. Assistance will be provided as a loan, grant or combination of both (GROAN) to minimize any additional financial hardship on Soldiers and Families.
