The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III) is authorized by the American Rescue Plan (ARP), signed into law on March 11, 2021, which provided emergency financial aid grants to serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic. These emergency funds may be used for any component of students cost of attendance or emergency costs that arise, such as tuition and fees, food, housing, course materials, technology, health care (including mental health) and child care expenses. Need is determined using the current year  FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid.) If you have not completed this year’s FAFSA, I encourage you to do so now if you intend to apply for this grant.
