Quarter 3, 2021 Student HEERF funding update.

  1. The Academy for Nursing and Health Occupations hereby acknowledges that we have signed and returned to the Department the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that our institution has used the applicable HEERF funds designated under CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students.
  2. The total amount of funds that our institution has received from the Department, pursuant to our institution’s Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs, is $1,302,090.
  3. The Total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to Students under the CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs as of the date of this submission is $1,302,090.
  4. The estimated total number of students that have been at the institution that are or were eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grant to Students under the CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs is 1,002
  5. The estimated number of students who have received and Emergency Financial Aid Grant to Students under the CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs is 1,002.
  6. The methods used by our institution to determine which students receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants and how much they would receive under the CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs are as follows:
    1. In order to access funds, students must be enrolled as of the time of funds disbursement. The disbursement must be during the National COVID Emergency period. If a student has already graduated or dropped at the time of disbursement, they will not be eligible.
    2. When Grant funds have been exhausted, students will not be eligible.
    3. The maximum amount of money will not exceed the maximum 2021 Pell award that the Department of Education has set for students with an EFC of 0 when combining HEERF I, HEERF II, and HEERF III allocations. I.e. if a student received the high priority HEERF I of $910, high priority HEERF II of $1,000 and high priority HEERF III of $2,300, then their total allocation is $4,210 which does not exceed the maximum 2021 Pell grant award of $6,345.
    4. Student exceptional needs will be prioritized by using their eligibility for Pell Grants and their EFC as well as their eligibility to receive other federal or state needs based program funds. Students whose EFC is above 0 will be reviewed for Professional Judgement using the usual Professional Judgement documentation to support the student or family loss of income, food insecurity, or housing insecurity due to COVID-19 and as allowed in HEERF III guidance.
  7. Each student accepting Emergency Financial Aid signs an acknowledgement that the funds are to be used only for the following categories: Food, Housing, Health Care, Child Care, Tuition and Course Materials.
