Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA)
Dear Student,
Inver Hills Community College, as part of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system, will receive a second round of federal recovery aid under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II), more commonly known as Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).  

Background

CRRSAA funds must prioritize relief to students experiencing the most significant financial needs arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar to the CARES Act, the funds are intended to help students cover expenses like food, housing, course materials, technology, health care (including mental health), and childcare.

Distribution Plan

Following the federal requirement to prioritize students with exceptional needs, Pell-eligible students were deemed to be eligible for a onetime grant that was distributed to their account in the first week of April.
  • Students who have filed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and demonstrated Pell eligibility received an $800 grant the first week of April 2021.
  • The remaining amounts for Inver Hills will be dispersed as emergency grants through the existing emergency application process. For emergency grant information, Students can contact the Counseling team at counseling@inverhills.edu, schedule an appointment online with a counselor through the Starfish scheduling link, or call 651-450-3548 to schedule over the phone. If you are experiencing financial or other needs due to the pandemic, please allow our counselors to discuss options with you.

Distribution Process

  • The April 2021 CRRSAA funds were automatically deposited into eligible students’ accounts and can be accessed through BankMobile, the established service for the college to disburse funds to students.
  • You do not need to establish a bank account with BankMobile.
  • You do need to setup direct-deposit or disbursement instructions with BankMobile to enable them to transfer funds to your designated bank automatically or make a disbursement to you.
  • Click here to access instructions to set up the BankMobile service.
  • Please visit the CRRSAA Financial Assistance site on the Inver Hills COVID-19 Resource website for more information and for related FAQs.
