Pop Quiz - Is the Waiver of the Institutional Share Matching Requirement for Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) Still in Effect?

Scenario: 

Our school remembers automatically receiving the institutional share waiver for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 award years due to the national emergency. Our school is not designated as Title III or Title V. We assumed this was still the case for the 2021-22 award year. Was this a correct assumption?

Answer:

No. This waiver was specifically defined in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) as only applying to the 2019-20 and 2020-21 award years. It does not extend beyond the 2020-21 award year and it does not extend through the end of the payment period that includes the last date that the national emergency is in effect.
