HEERF II – CRSSA Student Emergency Fund Information
Ohio Dominican has been awarded funds from the federal government as part of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRSSA) to help mitigate the financial impact of the pandemic on students.
Like last spring, this means that Ohio Dominican again has access to emergency funds it can use to help provide aid to eligible students who are struggling with expenses or other unexpected financial challenges related to the pandemic. Unlike the
federal assistance made available last year, this aid is also available to those eligible students who are attending class online.
Emergency grant aid will be awarded in accordance with federal, state and institutional rules and regulations. Students can apply for emergency grants through the Emergency Request form.
According to federal guidelines, recipients of this assistance must meet the below criteria. Students must:
- Currently be an enrolled undergraduate or graduate student in a degree-granting program, or student pursuing initial teacher licensure
- Be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- Have financial need or hardship related to the pandemic, such as tuition, food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care expenses. (Students with exceptional financial need as demonstrated with 2020-21 FAFSA results will
be given priority.)
Once all applications are received, assistance will be provided to eligible students as quickly as possible.
Even if you don’t meet criteria for this federal assistance, we want to hear from you so we may explore using alternative resources to assist you during this uncertain time. If you fall in that category, please contact Sharon Reed, Dean
of Student Life, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Financial Aid at email@example.com or 614-251-4778.
