The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or, CARES Act, was passed by Congress on March 27, 2020. This bill allotted funds to provide fast and direct economic aid to the American people negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Funds were allocated to the Office of Postsecondary Education as the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, or HEERF. Because of HEERF, Western Michigan University has been able to financially assist students through these grant funds.
Our office was able to allocate funds through the following:
Spring 2020: HEERF-CARES Act, Spring 2021: HEERF II, Summer 2021: HEERF III
