About HEERF Funds and Applying for the Funding
The federal government has allocated funds specifically for students with the passing of three bills (CARES, CRRSA, and the last bill ARPA) collectively called HEERF (Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund) which are related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fall ’21 HEERF application has been closed.
