CRRSAA Information

CURRENT INFORMATION — STUDENT ALLOCATIONS

ECMC Education, Inc. dba Altierus Career College (“Altierus”) distributed emergency government grant funding via the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) The CRRSAA Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) provides aid to institutions, through the U.S. Department of Education (U.S. DOE), to award as emergency financial aid grants to students who have or continue to be impacted by COVID-19.

In May 2020, Altierus signed the Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Funding Certification and Agreement and returned it to the Department of Education committing to use allocated student grant funds to provide emergency aid directly to our eligible students.

Consistent with guidance from the U.S. DOE, eligible students included all students who were enrolled for credits at the census date of July 26, 2021. Altierus followed guidance from the U.S. DOE to prioritize those with financial need in determining the grant amount provided to each student. Students that were eligible Pell Grant recipients automatically received the highest grant amounts (Tier I). Those eligible for non-Pell Title IV and those using other sources for funding automatically received lower grant awards (Tier 2 & Tier 3). All eligible Altierus students were automatically awarded some grant funding as all students continue to be impacted by the ongoing pandemic. Awards (checks) were mailed to eligible students to the address on file with their institution by September 9, 2021 along with a notification letter. All awards have been distributed and as of this quarterly report, 90% of the award checks have been cashed. Administrative staff continue to track the progress of outstanding distributions and work with individual students to update information.
