Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Program

CARES Act

Campbellsville University has been awarded funding through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), made possible through the Coronavirus Assistance, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help address the immediate and urgent impacts on our students and University.

The U.S. Department of Education has mandated that half of the funding is to be disbursed to students impacted by the pandemic and the other half can be used for institutional costs. Campbellsville University signed and returned the Certification and Agreement on 4/11/2020 to assure that the funding is being applied to students in need.

A $500.00 block grant has been given to degree-seeking students that were enrolled on 3/16/2020 and met the following criteria: Title IV eligible according to Section 484 of the Higher Education Act, filed a 2019-20 FAFSA with no flags, and who were not enrolled in a completely online program. Students were notified through university email address that the grant funds would be issued as a direct deposit or mailed paper check.  The email also included a link for students to request additional CARES funding through the Student Emergency Aid Request Form.  Emergency aid funds are intended to help with academically related expenses such as food, housing, course materials, technology, healthcare, and childcare. The Emergency Aid Application was located on the Campbellsville University website until funds were depleted.

Institutional funds may also be used to make additional financial aid grants to students. The institution has two additional required uses under the institutional portion of ARP. It must use a portion of the proceeds to: (a) implement evidence-based practices to monitor and suppress coronavirus in accordance with public health guidelines; and (b) conduct direct outreach to financial aid applicants about the opportunity to receive a financial aid adjustment due to the recent unemployment of a family member or independent student, or other circumstances, described in section 470A of the HEA.
