The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) was passed by Congress and signed into law on December 27, 2020. The second round of funding, Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II), is now available to award students. We estimate that 7,000 students are eligible to apply for this emergency grant, for a total of $4,881,678. The funding package provides aid to higher education students to cover components of cost of attendance and emergency costs associated with the coronavirus pandemic. Such costs include tuition and fees, housing, technology, educational materials, food, dependent care, healthcare, and other related costs.
To apply for the HEERF II funding, the HEERF II Student Application Form application is available to all current matriculated students in undergraduate, graduate and Professional Title IV-approved programs.
