U.S. Department of Education: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) Proprietary Institution Grant Funds for Students Assistance

Proprietary institutions of higher education may apply for grant funds under the new Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) program, Proprietary Institution Grant Funds for Students. Funds may be used to provide financial aid grants to students (including students exclusively enrolled in distance education), which may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or child care. In making such financial aid grants to students, grantees must prioritize grants to students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants.

Amount: $680,914,000 is available. Allocations will be calculated on the basis of the formula (see solicitation for details).

Eligibility: Proprietary institutions of higher education (IHEs) listed on the Department’s section 314(a)(1) allocation table. Proprietary institutions that did not receive a CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) award but are on the USDE’s published section 314(a)(1) allocation table for CRRSAA may apply for and receive funds.

Deadline: April 15, 2021.
