HEERF III (ARP): Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds

ESF Campus

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 a portion of which, Student Aid Funds, is to be used to provide emergency assistance to students. Supplemental funds were later authorized through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA)/(HEERF II) and the American Rescue Plan (ARP)/(HEERF III) to continue support for institutions of higher education to serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Acknowledgement

The College of Environmental Science and Forestry received Student Aid funding under section 2003(7) of the ARP.  This program, with some changes, provides supplemental funds to the CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) program.  The College of Environmental Science and Forestry signed and returned to the Education Department a Certification and Agreement as required under the CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) program.  We asknowledge that by drawing down the ARP funds, our institution agrees to be bound by the conditions set forth in the ARP Supplemental Agreement including using 100 percent of these funds to provide emergency aid grants to students.

Awarding Methodology

The State University of New York (SUNY) is currently drafting SUNY-Wide guidelines and a distribution plan for the American Rescue Plan (HEERF III) Student Aid Funds which will provide vital emergency grants to SUNY Undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional need and/or extraordinary financial circumstances.  Once the guidance and distribution plan are formally approved and communicated to the SUNY campuses, our required HEERF reporting disclosures will be updated.
