Northwest Nazarene University OPE ID 142461 received education stabilization funds under Section 314(a)(1), (a)(4) HEERF II of the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (“CRRSAA”), Public Law No: 116-260. This Fund Report applies to the student portion received under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II that is designated exclusively for emergency financial aid grants to students.
Northwest Nazarene University was informed of HEERF II eligibility after the HEERF annual report was submitted 2/8/2021. These additional funds were covered under the existing Certification of Agreement for the CARES Act HEER Funds. Northwest Nazarene University intends to spend, at minimum, the same percentage of funding for emergency financial aid grants to students as the initial allotment of HEERF.
The institution appreciates that Congress and the President have made these additional critical funds available for eligible students who have expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus pandemic. We take receipt of these federal funds seriously and are distributing them in accordance with CRRSAA and implementing guidance.
The institution is making the below information available for transparency purposes and in compliance with the U.S. Department of Education’s (“Department”) Electronic Announcement of January 14, 20211. For questions or concerns regarding this Fund Report, please contact Dwight Berreth, Interim Director of Financial Aid, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
