NASFAA Mention: More Confusion Over Emergency Aid

"The U.S Department of Education on Tuesday appeared to be on the verge of issuing an interim rule saying again that undocumented college students and others not eligible for regular financial aid couldn’t get the emergency grants created in the federal CARES Act. But in the latest in a series of twists, turns, advances and retreats by the department as it tries to distribute the grants for colleges to hand out, the department abruptly pulled back," Inside Higher Ed reports. 

..."'I can’t remember the last time schools experienced this much implementation whiplash,' Justin Draeger, president and CEO of the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators, said Tuesday, after the department backed off on issuing the rule."
