CARES Act Funding (HEERF I) - $578,695  

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or, CARES Act, was passed by Congress on March 27th, 2020. This bill allotted $2.2 trillion to provide fast and direct economic aid to the American people negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Of that money, approximately $14 billion was given to the Office of Postsecondary Education as the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, or HEERF [I].  

CRRSAA (HEERF II) - $1,059,314  

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) is authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Public Law 116-260, signed into law on Dec. 27, 2020.

The U.S. Department of Education issued guidance in Nov. 2021 that clarified the data that should be provided in the quarterly reports. Beginning with the quarterly report for July 1-Sept. 30, 2021, the heading should capture data for all three HEERF allotments. The following report has been revised from our original report posted on October 11th to accommodate this new guidance.
