Coronavirus Assistance for Students
CRRSA funds are still being processed. There’s still time to apply for funds if you were affected by Covid-19!
The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) was signed into law on Dec. 27, 2020. It includes a section “to provide financial aid grants to students which may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, health care (including mental health care) or child care.”
To qualify, you or someone in your household1 must have experienced a financial loss or increase in expenditures related to COVID-19. To apply:
- You have to submit a valid 2020-2021 or 2021-2022 FAFSA to LRCC. The FAFSA application is available at www.fafsa.ed.gov.
- Log in to your SIS account to compete the survey/application; you will only be qualified for these funds if you fill out this survey.
