Masks in Kuna Kindergarten (copy)

Kindergarten students wear masks during class at Reed Elementary School in Kuna on April 1, 2021.

Originally published Sept. 6 on 2020, Idaho found itself with $1.25 billion in federal funding to spend on coronavirus relief.

Of that money, $50 million went to a program providing families with education spending grants. To get the money in those families’ hands, Idaho awarded a lucrative no-bid contract to a company represented by longtime Idaho Republican Tom Luna.
