Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF)

UWS originally received Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act in the spring of 2020. Those funds were supplemented by emergency relief from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act in the spring of 2021. Higher Education Emergency Relief funds (HEERF) were allocated amongst the institutions and the students they serve. The student portion of the funding was intended to provide emergency grants to students for COVID-related expenses, including food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare.

The goal of UWS is to utilize the student portion of HEERF to assist as many students as possible in meeting their emergency financial needs during this challenging time. Please contact the office of financial aid at [email protected] with any questions.
