CARES Act Funding
The United States Congress signed into law on March 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Among many provisions, this act provided relief to institutions of higher learning and their students. A similar law was signed on December 27, 2020, Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) to provide additional relief.
Emory & Henry College received three types of federal emergency aid under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) portion of the CARES Act: Student, Institutional, and Strengthening Institutions. This funding is referred to as HEERF I. Emory & Henry College also received emergency aid as part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) under the Higher Education Emergency relief funds in the same three categories.
