Funding & Expenditure Reporting
Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), Concordia University Irvine received (or anticipates receiving) $2,726,592 in funding through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Phase II (HEERF II), and has signed and returned the required acknowledgement committing to provide no less than $861,799 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 314(a)(1) of CRRSAA, 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. Priority will be given to student with exceptional need, both in selection order and in the size of the grant. Exceptional need will be determined using the following Formula: Cost of Attendance minus Expected Family Contribution (EFC) minus Total Gift Aid from all sources = remaining need. Groupings of students will be created based on remaining need.
FAFSA results are the primary way to identify needy students as outlined in the formula above.
Block funding will be used for the distribution of HEERF II grants ranging from $100 to $1,500. Approximately 3,600 students are eligible to receive emergency grants, which may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health
