Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) under the CRRSAA Act

EMERGENCY GRANTS UNDER THE CRRSAA ACT

(HEERF I Grant Information)

Section 314(1)(a) of the Coronavirus, Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), enacted on December 27, 2020, allows higher education institutions to use certain funds allocated by the Department of Education to support students and higher education institutions with expenses and financial needs related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Brandeis University is pleased to announce that it has been allotted a second round of funds, designated under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), to assist students with emergency grants. These one-time emergency grants to students may be used for “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.” 

The main criterion for a HEERF II Grant is the demonstration of a genuine, eligible expense and that the capacity for continued study may be in jeopardy due to financial hardship.
