AFFIRMATION AND AGREEMENT
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides several different methods for distributing roughly $14 billion in funds to institutions of higher education. The most significant portion of that funding allocation provides that $12.56 billion will be distributed to institutions using a formula based on student enrollment. Of the amount allocated to each institution under this formula, 50 percent of those funds were provided to students in emergency financial aid grants to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. The CARES Act provides institutions with significant discretion on how to award this emergency assistance to students. SCCC has developed its own system and process for determining how to allocate these funds, which includes distributing the funds to all students. However, SCCC has utilized part of the institutional portion of HEERF funding for additional grants based on individual student need. These funds must be used to cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under your cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care).
By signing this form, you understand that these funds are only to be used for the purposes listed above. You further confirm that you are not currently receiving or eligible to receive funding from another agency to cover these expenses.
I have read, understand, and agree to the above information.
