The Department of Education, through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) III created under the American Rescue Plan (ARP), has provided Craven CC with emergency financial assistance to help students who are enrolled at Craven CC and have emergency costs that arose due to the coronavirus, such as tuition, food, health care (including mental), or child care.

Craven CC has received $3,169,842 in HEERF III/ARP funds from the federal government to assist students with costs associated with attending college. ARP requires that Craven CC prioritize the distribution of this funding for students with exceptional financial need.

Beginning in Fall 2021, students can complete the HEERF II/III application to receive assistance.

These funds will be awarded in addition to any federal, state or scholarship assistance the student is eligible to receive.

If a student needs additional emergency assistance, the HEERF application is available on our website.

These guidelines will be followed subject to the availability of HEERF funding.
