The Department of Education’s (ED) Office of Inspector General (OIG) has issued new findings concerning duplications totaling $73 million in the awarding process for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), along with recommendations to prevent, identify, and correct grant awards.
On Monday, the Department of Education (ED) released four new questions for public comment on race, ethnicity, and gender, which will appear in a voluntary survey on the 2023-24 electronic FAFSA. Starting in October, applicants will be asked their gender, whether they are transgender, their race, and their ethnicity. ED intends to use feedback on these questions to inform development of required questions on the 2024-25 FAFSA, per the FAFSA Simplification Act. Applicants will be advised that their answers to these questions will not affect their eligibility for federal student aid, and schools will not receive this information. Comments are due Aug. 12, 2022.
