In accordance with federal requirements, recipients must be eligible to file a FAFSA and eligible to receive federal Title IV student financial aid. CARES Act funds cannot be awarded to non-Title IV eligible students, international students, DACA students, or students enrolled in an online program prior to March 13, 2020.

HEERF II (CRRSA):  Student Emergency Financial Aid Grants

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) is authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Public Law 116-260, signed into law on Dec. 27, 2020. The CRRSAA requires that an institution receiving funding under section 314(a)(1) provide the same amount in financial aid grants to students from the new CRRSAA funds that it was required or which it would have been required to provide under its original CARES Act HEERF I Student Aid Portion award. The CRRSAA HEERF II Financial Aid Grants must be distributed to eligible students for the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or child care. The CRRSAA specifies that institutions must “prioritize grants to students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell grants.” The CRRSAA also provided funds to help institutions of higher education offset increased costs due to the pandemic.
