Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF)

2021-22 Application

The Fall 2021 / Spring 2022 HEERF Application closed on January 6, 2022.  Funds will be paid to eligible applicants until funds are exhausted.

FPC can provide grant funding for unique needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students who have attended FPC from Spring 2020 on that have immediate needs can apply for the HEERF grant funding. Funds from the HEERF are not considered estimated financial aid and will not count as estimated financial assistance (EFA) towards Cost of Attendance or the calculation of the Expected Family Contribution (EFC).

HEERF grants will not require students to have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file like the CARES Act required, however it will reduce time in verifying a student's eligibility. Students must be enrolled in one or all of the semester(s) of Spring 2020 - Fall 2021 to be considered for the funding.

Funds provided by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) may be used to address financial hardship, including tuition and fees, housing and food insecurity, medical expenses, and lack of educational support and supplies, including technology.
