HEERF II CRRSAA Emergency Relief Funds for Students
The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) provides emergency funding to universities to assist students in need during the coronavirus pandemic. In 2020, this funding was known as the CARES Act Funding.
MVSU has received HEERF II funding and has established the HEERF II CRRSAA Emergency Relief Fund to distribute grants to eligible students to help cover expenses related to the cost of attendance (i.e., food, housing, child care, health care ) or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus.
Funds from the HEERF II CRRSAA Emergency Relief Fund are not considered financial aid and do not affect a student's current or future financial aid eligibility.
