HEERF Act Institutional Aid Program

HEERF (Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund)-Institutional Aid

The CARES Act establishes and funds the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). Sections 18004(a)(1) and 18004(c) of the CARES Act, which addresses the HEERF, allow institutions of higher education to use up to 50 percent of the funds they receive to cover any costs associated with significant changes to the delivery of instruction due to the coronavirus so long as such costs do not include payment to contractors for the provision of pre-enrollment recruitment activities, including marketing and advertising; endowments; or capital outlays associated with facilities related to athletics, sectarian instruction, or religious worship (collectively referred to as “Recipient’s Institutional Costs”). Three HEERF acts were passed:  CARES: Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (HEERF I), CRRSAA: Coronavirus Response, and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (HEERF II), ARP: American Rescue Plan (HEERF III).
