CARES Act Grant Funds (HEERF I)

On March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, & Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law.  The CARES Act authorized the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF I), which provides emergency funding for students and institutions impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  

On April 9, 2020, the US Secretary of Education announced that the student funding was being made available to institutions to award and disburse to students who have incurred expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus, including eligible expenses under the student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child-care expenses. HEERF I emergency funding for institutions of higher education permitted them to use up to 50 percent of the funds received to cover any costs associated with significant changes to the delivery of instruction due to the coronavirus.
