Spring 2021 

On December 27, 2020, the President signed the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA). This new law gave the U.S. Department of Education approximately $22.7 billion to distribute to institutions of higher education in order to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF).

Cleveland Community College has applied and received emergency grant funds to distribute to eligible students. These funds are intended to help you pay for expenses such as housing, food, technology needs, childcare, medical expenses and other costs resulting from the campus disruption.

Funds from the HEERF II are not considered financial aid and do not affect a student’s current or future financial aid eligibility. Per guidance from the Federal Government, funds are being disbursed based on financial need, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If a student has not completed the FAFSA or if they are a high school student taking college courses (Career and College Promise), they were awarded the minimum grant award.
