CRRSAA: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II)

Standard Healthcare Services College of Nursing (Standard College) signed and returned a Certification & Agreement with the Department of Education to accept allocated funds from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Public Law 116-260. The CRRSAA established and funded the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) to provide emergency financial aid grants to students. Standard College gave the Department of Education the assurance that the applicable amount of funds designated under the CRRSAA would be used to ensure learning continues for students during the COVID-19 pandemic by helping eligible Standard College students cover expenses related to cost of living, unanticipated travel, additional technology requirements, or other needs related to an emergency situation, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or child care.
