The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) provides funding to institutions to provide emergency financial aid grants to students whose lives have been disrupted, many of whom are facing financial challenges and struggling to make ends meet.

Students cannot apply for assistance directly from the U.S. Department of Education but should complete the application by selecting the "Apply for CARES/CRRSAA Funds" button for consideration. The deadline to submit all applications March 12th, 2021 at 4:30 PM. If you have applied, please keep an eye on your ESU email for correspondence related to your application.

The CARES/CRRSAA provides institutions with significant discretion on how to award this emergency assistance to students. This means that each institution may develop its own system and process for determining how to allocate these funds to students who demonstrate significant need. Statutory law requires that the funds be used to cover emergency expenses related to the cost of attendance due to the COVID-19 pandemic (including tuition, fees, housing, food, technology, supplies, etc).
