In a bid to promote ‘quality education,’ the US Department of Education recently announced an additional $3.2 billion as emergency grants to students at the US universities and colleges through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF).

Students from over 1,800 higher education institutions will benefit from it as the funds will be used to assist institutions recovering from the COVID-19.

Following the announcement, US Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona stated that the American Rescue Plan (ARP) aims to provide critical financial support to higher education institutions, to ensure that institutions receive the appropriate funds so that students can have access to ‘quality education.’

Furthermore, a suggestion has also been to use the funds for those students whose needs have not been met during the pandemic.

Department (ARP) aims to provide $1.6 billion to the Black Colleges (HBCUs), $143 million to the Colleges that are tribally controlled (TCCUs), and $1.19 billion to the minority institutions (MSIs) and under-resourced institutions that are also community colleges.

Attributing sources, the amount under the HEERF relief has already totalled more than $76 billion, which is much beyond what it pledged.
