Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II)

 

Garnet Career Center is pleased to announce that we have been awarded supplemental funds for the Student and Institutional Portion of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) as authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), authorized by Congress under the CARES Act. The signed Certificate and Agreement of the HEERF I was returned to the USDE on July 15th, 2020. Garnet intends to use and distribute these funds to provide emergency Financial Aid Grants to eligible Garnet students who have been impacted by the COVID-19 and for COVID-19 related institutional expenses. Garnet received a total of $296,103 from the USDE for the supplemental grant Student Portion and Institutional Portion combined of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds II from the CRRSAA Act on January 19, 2021.

Garnet Career Center is looking forward to awarding the total required amount of $74,258 to approximately 55 eligible students who were actively enrolled as of February 10, 2021. Funds will be divided among eligible students based on program hours and enrollment status.  Eligible students will receive CARES Act Emergency Financial Aid payments. Allocations to students will be made in the form of relief checks to be mailed at the end of the 3rd quarter or distributed to active students attending classes in person.

Checks were mailed on March 5, 2021, and/or distributed to in person students during the weeks of March 1st and March 8th, 2021.

 An eligible student is a student who is actively enrolled as of February 10, 2021 in an Automotive Technology, Practical Nursing, Medical Assisting, or Phlebotomy Technician program as a full or part time student, is maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress according to the program guidelines, has been actively participating in our Emergency Distance Learning activities, is a U.S. Citizen or eligible non-citizen as defined by Federal Title IV regulations, and is NOT in default on a Federal Student Loan.

Guidance from the Federal government indicates that these funds will NOT be considered taxable income and will not impact a student’s eligibility for other Federal or State benefits a student may be entitled to.
