HEERF Grant Funding – UPDATE!
At this time, there is a limited amount of funds remaining for student emergency grants as allocated through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CSSRA) Act.
The CRRSA specifically designates funds under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) model to distribute direct grant assistance to students to assist with any component of a student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus (examples may include tuition, food, housing, books and supplies, transportation, health care, or child care). The CRRSA also requires schools prioritize students with exceptional need.
If you are enrolled in the summer term, and you have a current, valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), you are invited to apply for these funds.
For additional information, including how to apply for student assistance through HEERF funds, please refer to the email you received on May 12th, 2021.
