OTC Inside the Beltway: What the End of the COVID-19 National Emergency Means For Financial Aid

This week on "Off The Cuff," Justin and Karen are joined by Jon Fansmith, the American Council on Education's senior vice president of government relations, to discuss new data from the Department of Education on how Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) grants helped students and what President Joe Biden’s decision to end the COVID-19 national emergency means for financial aid. The team also discusses new data from the White House about Biden’s student loan cancellation program, and the Office of Federal Student Aid’s  annual performance review. Maria then updates listeners on the latest news, including the announcement that Biden will release his budget proposal for the coming fiscal year on March 9.
