COVID-19 Emergency Relief Information

CARES Act (HEERF I) 

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a Congressional bill which provides federally funded emergency assistance for individuals, families, and businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic. This bill allotted $2.2 trillion to provide fast and direct economic aid to the American people negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Of that money, approximately $14 billion was given to the Office of Postsecondary Education as the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). $1,212,773 of HEERF funding (the “Student Portion” under CARES Act Sec. 18004(a)(1)) was allocated to the University of Richmond to be distributed directly to students impacted by the disruption of campus due to COVID-19. The amount of funding distributed to each school by the Department of Education (DOE) was based on each school’s number of full-time equivalent students.
