NASFAA Mention: DeVos Finalizes Rule Blocking Undocumented Students From CARES Act Grants

"It’s been a roller coaster at the Department of Education since Congress passed the CARES Act and President Trump signed it into law in late March. After weeks of back and forth, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos issued a regulation Thursday that blocked undocumented students from coronavirus relief grants provided under the CARES Act," Forbes reports.

"The Department issued a variety of confusing and conflicting revisions to the guidance. The National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators created a helpful timeline for all of the Department’s guidance, but one of the most confusing was the Department saying they wouldn’t enforce the guidance. This is just the latest piece of a dizzying saga during the pandemic."
