CARES Act Update
Mid-America Christian University returned to the Department of Education the executed “Funding Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Student under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, Economy Security (CARES) Act” on April 22, 2020. The University received notice on April 27, 2020, that we had received an award of $358,376.00. This amount represents fifty percent of the total refunds to be received by the University until Section 18004(a)(1) and will be used by the University to provide emergency financial aid to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus.
The Department of Education has stipulated that the following criteria must be met for eligibility.
An eligible student must:
- be enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate student at MACU
- be a U.S. 公民或有资格获得第四章资助的合格非公民
- have a valid Social Security Number (SSN)
- have submitted a FAFSA for the 2019-2020 school year and determined to be eligible to receive Title IV funds
- not have defaulted on a student loan
- not owe grant refunds
The University determined all of the students that were eligible under the HEERF guidelines would receive a portion of the student grant. The distribution amounts were determined based on the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus. This included courses no longer being offered on campus, inability to live on campus, 无法继续参加校园伙食计划. Additionally, a change in access to course materials, technology, healthcare, and child care was considered when determining the student’s possible expenses related to the disruption of campus operations.
The University communicated with those students who were eligible to receive these funds. Students were given an opportunity to update their addresses and/or provide direct deposit information to ensure the funds could be provided to the student as quickly as possible. Emergency grant funds were disbursed directly to students during the dates of May 13-20, 2020.
- Total Amount of Funds Allocated to MACU: $358,376.00
- Estimated number of students to whom funds were distributed: 390
SPRING 2021 EMERGENCY GRANTS: HEERF II
The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II), as part of the federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), 提供额外的资金给学院和大学，以防止, prepare and respond to COVID-19. A portion of these funds is earmarked for distribution as emergency student grants for costs that arose due to COVID-19, including tuition, food, housing, health care, or child care.
Unlike the CARES Act (HEERF I), institutions are required to prioritize grants to students with exceptional financial needs, 比如那些获得联邦佩尔助学金(基于需求的助学金)的学生. Unlike CARES funds, HEERF II基金也可以颁发给在线学生, can be applied to a student’s outstanding account balance if the student provides written (or electronic), affirmative consent. 学生必须符合以下标准，才可申请高等教育资助基金II:
- Demonstrate significant financial need with preference given to Pell-eligible students (to determine this, MACU required all students to be U.S. 公民或永久居民，并有2020-2021年FAFSA档案)
- Be enrolled as a degree-seeking student on-campus or online program for the spring 2021 semester.
Please note that by federal guidelines, international and undocumented (DACA) students are not eligible to receive HEERF II funds.

2021-2022 EMERGENCY GRANTS: HEERF III
《十大正规赌平台平台》(ARP)于3月11日签署, 2021, and includes approximately $39.6 billion for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) and represents the third stream of funding appropriated for HEERF to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus. Mid-America Christian University was awarded $3,218,585.00 in total HEERF III funds.
The HEERF III program requires at least half of the institution’s allocation under ARP (a)(1) must be used to make emergency financial aid grants to students. The minimum amount that was calculated by the Department of Education that the Mid-America Christian University must use for financial aid grants to students must be at least $1,698,958.00
What is different with HEERF III?
Students who are or were enrolled in an institution of higher education on or after the date of the declaration of the national emergency due to the coronavirus (March 13, 2020年)有资格获得HEERF的紧急财政援助赠款, 无论他们是否完成了FAFSA或是否有资格获得第四章. CRRSAA要求学校优先考虑有特殊需求的学生, such as students who receive Pell Grants or are undergraduates with extraordinary financial circumstances, in awarding emergency financial aid grants to students.
As announced in the Department’s final rule, “Eligibility To Receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students Under HEERF” (May 14, 2021, 86 FR 26608) (final rule), the term “student,” for purposes of the phrases “grants to students,” “emergency financial aid grants to students,和HEERF项目中使用的“学生经济援助补助金”, is now defined as any individual who is or was enrolled (as defined in 34 CFR § 668.2) at an eligible institution (as defined in 34 CFR § 600.2) on or after March 13, 2020, the date of declaration of the national emergency due to the coronavirus (85 FR 15337). Thus, students are no longer required to be eligible for Title IV student financial aid in order to receive HEERF grants to students.
- Students must be enrolled for the semester they are applying for emergency grant funds. Students taking non-credit courses are not eligible.
- Students must complete an online HEERF III Emergency Relief Grant Application by the established deadline.
- Have expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus, 包括学生出勤费用下的合格费用，如学费, food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, child care, mental or health expenses.
