These funds provide assistance to students whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic, support the transition to virtual learning and provide for safe campus operations.

HEERF 1

Overview

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by the U.S. Government to provide support in the wake of the coronavirus public health crisis and associated economic fallout. One section of the CARES Act established the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), which provides funding to the nation's colleges and universities to provide emergency grants to students. This funding also covers a portion of certain unbudgeted costs and lost revenue due to the disruption of campus activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic under HEERF's Institutional Portion. CSUN has signed and returned the Recipients Funding Certification and Agreement to the U.S. Department of Education indicating that the university will use no less than 50% of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide emergency aid to students.
