The U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) released guidance related to the American Rescue Plan Act on HEERF emergency grant funding to higher education institutions to assist students with any component of 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.
HEERF funds are emergency grants and do not require repayment. Students may request funding by following the steps below.
Award amounts vary and are based on the number of applications received and amount of available funding. Pell Grant eligibility status is also considered to meet USDOE’s requirement to prioritize students in exceptional need. The fall term survey will remain open until August 20th, 2021. Students requesting assistance must do so by this date.
If you have any questions, please contact the Roane State Cares team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
