What is the CRRSAA, and how will it help students at W&J?

The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA, Sections 314(a)(1) and (a)(4) of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021) was signed into law December 27, 2020.  The CRRSAA established additional funding for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), which allocated money to higher education institutions impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and provided CARES Act grants to students this past summer.  Washington & Jefferson College received $667,164 that must be made available directly to students as emergency grants for any component of students’ cost of attendance or emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus such as tuition, food, housing, health care and others not specifically identified here.
