What are the American Rescue Plan (HEERF III) emergency financial grants?

The American Rescue Plan included additional COVID-19 relief for institutions of higher education. This new stimulus bill included $40 billion for higher education institutions and students. This plan created funding for emergency financial grants that may be used by students for any component of their 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. Students determine how they may use their emergency financial grant within the allowable uses. For more information, visit these sites - NASFAA - HEERF III, US Dept of Education - HEERF III.
