AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN (HEERF III) FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION

 

Cayuga Community College received Student Aid funding under section 2003(7) of the American Rescue Plan (ARP). This program, with some changes, provides supplemental funds to the CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) program.

Cayuga Community College signed and returned to the Education Department a Certification and Agreement as required under the CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) program. We acknowledge that by drawing down the ARP funds, our institution agrees to be bound by the conditions set forth in the ARP Supplemental Agreement, including using 100 percent of these funds to provide emergency aid grants to students.

Cayuga Community College is expecting to receive $3,253,329 to distribute to students.

Cayuga Community College is awaiting guidance from the State University of New York (SUNY) in regard to award methodology. The State University of New York is currently drafting SUNY-wide guidelines and a distribution plan for the American Rescue Plan (HEERF III) Student Aid Funds which will provide vital emergency grants to SUNY undergraduate and graduate students with exceptional need and/or extraordinary financial circumstances. Once the guidance and distribution plans are formally approved and communicated to the SUNY campuses, Cayuga’s required HEERF reporting disclosures will be updated.
