CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

Hood College was awarded funds from the Department of Education’s Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). Per CARES guidelines, the College must distribute funds directly to students who incurred costs due to the coronavirus and the subsequent suspension of on-campus operations.  Such costs may include food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child-care.  


The College retained a portion of the HEERF for undergraduate and graduate students not captured in the original distribution. The application was made available June 1 through June 15.
