HEERF II (CRRSAA) Student Emergency Grants

SUNY Oneonta received Student Aid funding under the CRRSAA section 314(a)(1) program. This program, with some changes, provides supplemental funds to the CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) program. SUNY Oneonta signed and returned to the Education Department a Certification and Agreement as required under the CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) program. We acknowledge that by drawing down the CRRSAA funds, our institution agrees to be bound by the conditions set forth in the CRRSAA Supplemental Agreement including using 100 percent of these funds, $2,870,409, to provide emergency aid grants to students.

You may be eligible to receive funding if you:

  • Are a matriculated full- or part-time undergraduate or graduate student
  • Have completed the 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
  • Have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) within the range for Pell eligibility: 0 – 5,711

Note: unlike the CARES student emergency grant program, students meeting the above requirements who are enrolled in exclusively on-line programs are eligible for HEERF II grants.

Awards will vary by enrollment level (full or part-time) and EFC. Eligible students will receive an email indicating their individual award amount.

The following chart indicates award amounts based on an estimate of 2,032 eligible students enrolled in the spring 2021 semester:

No application is required for receipt of HEERF II Student Aid funds. Eligible students will be notified of their grant amounts and information about delivery of funds via email from the EmergencyRelief@oneonta.edu email address.

HEERF II student aid funds may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or emergency costs that that arise due to coronavirus, including:

  • Tuition
  • Food
  • Housing
  • Health care (including mental health care)
  • Childcare

HEERF II student aid funds will not need to be repaid

HEERF II student aid funds will not impact your current or future financial aid

SUNY Oneonta will apply HEERF II funds directly to the student semester billing account. The entire amount will then be refunded to the student, regardless of the account balance. Funds will be issued electronically through SUNY Oneonta’s refund delivery partner, BankMobile. To ensure funds are received in the most timely manner, students should be certain they have set up their BankMobile account and indicated their preferred bank account for electronic transfer of funds. To create or update a BankMobile account, go to BankMobile’s refund selection page. For assistance in setting up a BankMobile account or related questions, contact StudentAccts@oneonta.edu.

Distribution of funds will begin by mid-April.
