Consolidated Appropriations Act
In December 2020, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021, a massive package of legislation that included fiscal year 2021 funding and additional pandemic relief. Included in the FY 2021 omnibus was the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act, which provided $22.7 billion to the HEERF established in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
Wayne State College expects the Department of Education to release more information about the distribution of the additional HEERF funds in the near future. Upon receipt of the information, we will communicate with all eligible students through their Wayne State College student email account.
