Funding & Expenditure Reporting
Under the CARES Act, Concordia University Irvine has received (or anticipates receiving) $1,723,598 in funding through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), and has signed and returned the required acknowledgement committing to provide no less than 50% of the funding in emergency grants directly to students whose lives and education have been disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak.
To determine which students receive emergency grants and how much they would receive under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act, Concordia University Irvine created a distribution formula for Title IV eligible (federal aid) students that incorporates Department of Education guidelines, Pell Grant eligibility, and enrollment in the spring 2020 semester. Funding is based on need, as determined by the filed 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). Students who did not file a FAFSA this year have until June 30, 2020, to complete the 2019-20 FAFSA to be considered for an emergency grant.
Eligible undergraduate students can receive up to $1,000. Eligible graduate students can receive up to $500. Nearly 1,200 students are eligible to receive emergency grants upon submitting a CARES Act application with qualified expenses. Qualifying expenses due to disruption include, but are not limited to: course materials, technology, food, housing, healthcare, child care, and transportation.
