Heerf II Grants

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) was expanded under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) in December, 2020.  HEERF II provides emergency funds to universities, including UMass Amherst, to directly support students whose lives and educations have been disrupted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  The UMass HEERF II Grant has been created to disburse these funds to students.
