HEERF II (CRRSAA) and HEERF III (ARP Act)

Ameritech has received funding through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA), Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) and the American Rescue Plan (ARP), Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund III (HEERF III).

Ameritech has finalized the process for administering HEERF II and III Grants to students, which includes assessing student need, determining individual payments, and distributing funds.

Specifics and details regarding the process and disbursements are as follows.

Step 1: Identify amount of HEERF II and III funds Ameritech has been awarded. ($1,047,476.00)

 

1-1: Determine methodology for calculating allocations to active students with exceptional need. (1872 active students)

1-2: Since priority in awarding these funds must be given to students with exceptional need, we have used the students’ EFC/Pell eligibility as the measure of exceptional need.
– Those students who are PELL eligible will be awarded a grant of $765.

– Those students who are not PELL eligible will be awarded a grant of $375.

Step 2: Create signNow form to be sent to students’ college email address so they can provide direct deposit information for HEERF funding disbursement.

2-1: Send signNow form to all Active students as attachment to email explaining purpose of form.


Eligibility

In order to be eligible for HEERF II and HEERF III funding, a student must:

  • have exceptional need as exhibited by his/her EFC/Pell eligibility;
  • be enrolled in at least one credit hour for the Fall 2021 semester, as a degree-seeking student;
  • be a U.S. citizen or Title IV eligible noncitizen; and
  • have a valid 2021-2022 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file with the College.

 

The requirements listed above are verified through the federal financial aid application process; therefore, Ameritech considers students eligible for a HEERF II/III Grant, if they submitted a 2021-22 FAFSA.
