Institutions of higher education received funding through the CRRSA Act called HEERF II (Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds) that provides money to students in the form of emergency grants to help offset costs that arise due to Coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health), and childcare.
Assumption University received $742,516 in emergency grants for eligible students. These grants can be used to pay for emergency costs that arise due to Coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health), and childcare.
