*For the initial report and each report thereafter, institutions should use data suppression or other statistical methodologies to protect the personally identifiable information from student education records consistent with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. 1232g; 34 CFR part 99) and any applicable state laws. For this report when the total number of students who received HEERF emergency financial aid grants as undergraduates, graduates, or in total is less than 10, but not 0, then the institution should display the total number of students as less than 10 (“<10”) on the publicly available websites controlled by the institution. Additionally, IHEs should use complementary suppression to protect values that could be inferred otherwise. For example, if the total student count is equal to 25, the undergraduate amount is equal to 20, and the graduate amount equal to 5, IHEs should report both the undergraduate and graduate amount as ‘-‘. The total student count can remain displayed as is.

** For students in both undergraduate and graduate categories, classify as a graduate student.

***Do NOT include funds from the Institutional Resilience and Expanded Postsecondary Opportunity (IREPO) funds as part of this annual performance report.

Form Instructions

Completing the Form: On each form, fill out the institution of higher education (IHE or institution) name, the date of the report, the appropriate quarter the report covers (3/31/22, 6/30/22, 9/30/22, 12/31/22), the 11-digit PR/Award Number (number is found in Box 2 of your Grant Award Notification (GAN)) for each HEERF grant funding stream as applicable, the total amount of funds awarded by the Department (including reserve funds if awarded), and check the box if the report is a “final report.” Institutions that expended HEERF grant funds during the calendar quarter from January 1 – March 30, 2021 are required to post the quarterly report that involved the expenditure of HEERF II CRRSAA and HEERF I CARES Act funds. The Department did not previously affirmatively indicate this reporting requirement was in place for HEERF II CRRSAA funds. As such, institutions may have until the end of the second calendar quarter, June 30, 2021, to post these retroactive reports if they have not already done so.

In the charts, an institution must specify the amount of expended HEERF I, II, and IIII funds for each funding category: (a)(1) Institutional Portion; (a)(2), and (a)(3), if applicable. (a)(2) funds include Assistance Listing Numbers (ALNs) 84.425J (Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)), 84.425K (Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs)), 84.425L (Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs)), 84.425M (Strengthening Institutions Program (SIP)); (a)(3) funds are for ALN 84.425N (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) Formula Grant) and 84.425S (SAIHE). Each category is deliberately broad and may not capture specific grant program requirements. Explanatory footnotes help clarify certain reporting categories. Provide brief explanatory notes for how funds were expended, including the title and brief description of each project or activity in which funds were expended. Do not include personally identifiable information (PII). Round expenditures to the nearest dollar. If there is no expenditure to report for a given cell, fill it with a “0.” Please refrain from using any symbols throughout the form, including but not limited to “~.”

Posting the Form: This form must be conspicuously posted on the institution’s primary website on the same page the reports of the IHE’s activities as to the emergency financial aid grants to students made with funds from the IHE’s allocation under (a)(1) of the CARES Act, CRRSAA, and ARP (Student Aid Portion) are posted. It must be posted as a digital PDF. No handwritten or scanned PDFs are allowed. Please refrain from adding additional material to the uploaded form. The PDF must be named in the following manner: [8- digit OPEID]_[Survey Name]_[Quarter/Year]_[Date of Release]. For example, 01177600_HEERF_Q32021_101021. The 8-digit OPEID can be found at the DAPIP website or the NCES website. In the event a DUNS number applies to multiple OPEIDs, use the OPEID for the campus with the highest enrollment. The quarter pertains to the calendar year, following the same cadence the reporting periods follows. The date of release should be reported as the deadline for form submission, 10 days after the end of each reporting period. A new separate form must be posted covering each quarterly reporting period (September 30, December 31, March 31, June 30), concluding after either (1) posting the quarterly report ending September 30, 2023 or (2) when an institution has expended and liquidated all (a)(1) Institutional Portion, (a)(2), and (a)(3) funds and checks the “final report” box. IHEs must post this quarterly report form no later than 10 days after the end of each calendar quarter (October 10, January 10, April 10, July 10). Each quarterly report must be separately maintained in a PDF document linked directly from the IHE’s HEERF reporting webpage. Reports must be maintained for at least three years after the submission of the final report per 2 CFR § 200.333. Any changes or updates after initial posting must be conspicuously noted after initial posting and the date of the change must be noted in the “Date of Report” line. Under the PRA, participants are required to respond to this collection to obtain or retain benefit.

Form Instructions

Completing the Form: On each form, fill out the institution of higher education (IHE or institution) name, the date of the report, the appropriate quarter the report covers (3/31/22, 6/30/22, 9/30/22, 12/31/22), the 11-digit PR/Award Number (number is found in Box 2 of your Grant Award Notification (GAN)) for each HEERF grant funding stream as applicable, the total amount of funds awarded by the Department (including reserve funds if awarded), and check the box if the report is a “final report.” Institutions that expended HEERF grant funds during the calendar quarter from January 1 – March 30, 2021 are required to post the quarterly report that involved the expenditure of HEERF II CRRSAA and HEERF I CARES Act funds. The Department did not previously affirmatively indicate this reporting requirement was in place for HEERF II CRRSAA funds. As such, institutions may have until the end of the second calendar quarter, June 30, 2021, to post these retroactive reports if they have not already done so.

In the charts, an institution must specify the amount of expended HEERF I, II, and IIII funds for each funding category: (a)(1) Institutional Portion; (a)(2), and (a)(3), if applicable. (a)(2) funds include Assistance Listing Numbers (ALNs) 84.425J (Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)), 84.425K (Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs)), 84.425L (Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs)), 84.425M (Strengthening Institutions Program (SIP)); (a)(3) funds are for ALN 84.425N (Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) Formula Grant) and 84.425S (SAIHE). Each category is deliberately broad and may not capture specific grant program requirements. Explanatory footnotes help clarify certain reporting categories. Provide brief explanatory notes for how funds were expended, including the title and brief description of each project or activity in which funds were expended. Do not include personally identifiable information (PII). Round expenditures to the nearest dollar. If there is no expenditure to report for a given cell, fill it with a “0.” Please refrain from using any symbols throughout the form, including but not limited to “~.”

Posting the Form: This form must be conspicuously posted on the institution’s primary website on the same page the reports of the IHE’s activities as to the emergency financial aid grants to students made with funds from the IHE’s allocation under (a)(1) of the CARES Act, CRRSAA, and ARP (Student Aid Portion) are posted. It must be posted as a digital PDF. No handwritten or scanned PDFs are allowed. Please refrain from adding additional material to the uploaded form. The PDF must be named in the following manner: [8- digit OPEID]_[Survey Name]_[Quarter/Year]_[Date of Release]. For example, 01177600_HEERF_Q32021_101021. The 8-digit OPEID can be found at the DAPIP website or the NCES website. In the event a DUNS number applies to multiple OPEIDs, use the OPEID for the campus with the highest enrollment. The quarter pertains to the calendar year, following the same cadence the reporting periods follows. The date of release should be reported as the deadline for form submission, 10 days after the end of each reporting period. A new separate form must be posted covering each quarterly reporting period (September 30, December 31, March 31, June 30), concluding after either (1) posting the quarterly report ending September 30, 2023 or (2) when an institution has expended and liquidated all (a)(1) Institutional Portion, (a)(2), and (a)(3) funds and checks the “final report” box. IHEs must post this quarterly report form no later than 10 days after the end of each calendar quarter (October 10, January 10, April 10, July 10). Each quarterly report must be separately maintained in a PDF document linked directly from the IHE’s HEERF reporting webpage. Reports must be maintained for at least three years after the submission of the final report per 2 CFR § 200.333. Any changes or updates after initial posting must be conspicuously noted after initial posting and the date of the change must be noted in the “Date of Report” line. Under the PRA, participants are required to respond to this collection to obtain or retain benefit.

*For the initial report and each report thereafter, institutions should use data suppression or other statistical methodologies to protect the personally identifiable information from student education records consistent with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. 1232g; 34 CFR part 99) and any applicable state laws. For this report when the total number of students who received HEERF emergency financial aid grants as undergraduates, graduates, or in total is less than 10, but not 0, then the institution should display the total number of students as less than 10 (“<10”) on the publicly available websites controlled by the institution. Additionally, IHEs should use complementary suppression to protect values that could be inferred otherwise. For example, if the total student count is equal to 25, the undergraduate amount is equal to 20, and the graduate amount equal to 5, IHEs should report both the undergraduate and graduate amount as ‘-‘. The total student count can remain displayed as is.

** For students in both undergraduate and graduate categories, classify as a graduate student.

***Do NOT include funds from the Institutional Resilience and Expanded Postsecondary Opportunity (IREPO) funds as part of this annual performance report.

This page has been updated with current information as of June 30, 2021.

Federal emergency student aid funds at AACC include the 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARP), the 2021 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) and the exhausted 2020 Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds.

OVERVIEW

2021 ARP: The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP), Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERFIII), allocated to AACC, $17,094,453 of which $8,779,172 can only be used for emergency financial aid grants to assist all students who are or were enrolled at AACC during the COVID-19 national emergency. Once the ARP Act was passed into law, the U.S. Department of Education provided guidance to the college on how to implement the ARP Act, and to whom funds may be provided. These funds are available to AACC students, and do not require the completion of a FAFSA or Title IV financial aid eligibility. Emergency financial aid grants to students may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or childcare. These funds are prioritized for students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants or undergraduates with extraordinary financial circumstances.

2021 CRRSAA: The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), allocated to AACC, $9,667,547 of which $2,157,673 can only be used for emergency student aid to assist eligible students with cost of attendance or emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus. Once the CRRSAA Act was passed into law, the U.S. Department of Education provided guidance to the college on how to implement the CRRSAA Act, and to whom funds may be provided. These funds are prioritized for students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants.

2020 CARES Act: The Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act 2020 passed by Congress allocated to AACC, $4,315,345 of which 50% or $2,157,673 can only be used for emergency student aid to assist eligible students who incurred “expenses related to the disruption of college operations due to coronavirus.” Once the CARES Act was passed into law, the U.S. Department of Education provided guidance to the college on how to implement the CARES Act, and to whom funds may be provided. As of December 31, 2020, CARES Act emergency student aid was exhausted. See final and archived reports below for additional information and required reporting on the use of these funds.
