The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) application is currently available. The deadline to submit a completed application is December 10, 2021. All applications will be reviewed by committee. Applicants will be notified of the decision via email and all decisions are final. Students who are or were enrolled at the University at Buffalo during the COVID-19 pandemic may be eligible for an emergency grant, regardless of citizenship status or Title IV financial aid eligibility. Priority is given to students with exceptional need. However, all applications will be considered. A 2021-22 FAFSA is required for all domestic students. International, DACA and undocumented students should submit the HEERF Application for International Students which will require additional financial information in lieu of the FAFSA. HEERF grant funding may assist with any expense related to the cost of attendance (tuition, fees, books and supplies, housing and transportation) as well as emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus (health care, dependent care, etc.) NOTE: The General Application must be submitted prior to completing the HEERF application.
