The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a legislation passed by Congress to respond to COVID-19. Included in the legislation is the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), which allocates funds to institutions based on the number of students with high financial need and the institution’s total student enrollment. Of each institution’s HEERF allocation, 50% must be distributed directly to the students in the form of emergency student financial aid grants to cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. The remaining portion of an institution’s CARES Act funding may be used for certain other expenses relating to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. CARES Act established an approximately $14b Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). FXUA was allocated $785,957 (Between June 2020 to March 2022) If you need more information on Cares Act please go to: https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/caresact.html#ins
