Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund
(HEERF II & III)
On December 27, 2020, the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) was authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA). In addition, HEERF III Funds, authorized by both American Rescue Plan (ARP) and CRRSAA, was signed into law on March 11, 2021.
As a result, $76.2 billion was allocated in support of education and was distributed across all educational institutions with both funds. USSA has received $24,608 in HEERF II and will receive $41,244 in HEERF III. Once the ARP funds are received, the United States Sports Academy will have a total of $65,852 in funds from the 2021 CRRSAA act to be shared with our students that have prioritized exceptional need.
The United States Sports Academy signed and returned to the Department of Education the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that the institution has used the applicable amount of funds provided under the CRRSAA and ARP (a)(1) and (a)(4) programs to provide Emergency Financial Aid grants to students.
USSA did not receive HERF Institutional Funding.
