"If you’re a college student dealing with new expenses due to Covid-19-related changes at your school, a one-time Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) grant could help," Forbes reports.
"... The law creating the program doesn’t explicitly say a student must have a Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, on file to get money. But according to the National Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (NASFAA), many schools likely will assess student eligibility for funding by checking it against the data in their FAFSA. That means students who have submitted a FAFSA will probably have a better shot at receiving a grant."
