Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF)

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides roughly $14 billion in Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) to institutions of higher education using a formula based on student enrollment. Of the amount allocated to each institution, at least 50 percent must be reserved to provide students with emergency financial aid grants to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations. These are the amounts allocated to institutions in Iowa:
