Per section 314(d)(5) of the CRRSAA, MHCC has provided at least the same amount of funding in financial aid grants to students as was required to be provided under sections 18004(a)(1) and (c) of division B of the CARES Act. This means that no less than 50 percent of the HEERF II funds received under the CRRSAA were provided as emergency financial aid grants to students. The total amount of funds that MHCC has received from the Department pursuant to the institution’s Certification and Agreement [for] Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students is $1,692,829.
The total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to students under Section 314(a)(1) of the CRRSAA as of 06/30/2021 is $1,629,829. (NOTE: Additional emergency grants were awarded to students using institutional funds – see Quarterly Reports in sidebar for more information.)
The estimated total number of students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 314 of the CRRSAA is approximately 2,816.
The total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 314 of the CRRSAA is 2,816.
The method(s) used by MHCC to determine which students receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants and how much they would receive under Section 314 of the CRRSSA is described below.
Winter & Spring 2021
- The College prioritized students in Winter and Spring terms with exceptional need, and automatically awarded students who had a 2020-21 FAFSA on file with MHCC. The FAFSA was required to verify citizenship status.
- Regardless of enrollment status, program, or other criteria, students with a FAFSA on file were awarded as follows:
- Students eligible for Pell Grant received $400 per term for Winter and Spring (if enrolled)
- Students not eligible for Pell Grant received $300 per term for Winter and Spring (if enrolled)
- NOTE: Additional HEERF funds made available under the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund were also disbursed to eligible students at this time. Since those funds were not awarded from the HEERF funds designated under CARES or CRSSA, they are not reported here.
