Yes, the recent additional COVID relief (CRRSA Act) as of December 27, 2020, unlocked more funds that colleges can provide directly to students. Students in need should reach out to their college's financial aid office to inquire about emergency aid. Students may need to have a FAFSA on file to receive these funds.
This emergency aid can be used to cover any part of COA, or emergency costs due to COVID-19 such as tuition/fees, food, housing, health care, etc. This emergency aid is also available to students fully enrolled in distance learning.
