Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding

SUNY Cortland Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

The Federal Government established the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Stability Act (CARES) on March 27, 2020. Supplemental HEERF Funds were later authorized through the 2021 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) and the 2021 American Rescue Plan (ARP). SUNY Cortland has been allocated HEERF funding to provide emergency grants to students experiencing financial hardship specifically due to the disruption of campus operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and/or for expenses related to any component of the student's cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus.

As a recipient of HEERF emergency student grant funding, SUNY Cortland is required to report certain elements on a quarterly basis:

CARES ACT (HEERF I) posted Dec 30, 2020

CRRSAA Act (HEERF II) posted July 9, 2021

ARP (HEERF III) posted July 9, 2021
