Sept. 30, 2021 (Revised Nov. 23, 2021)
The College of Central Florida (CF) has signed and returned the Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) Certification and Agreement Form. CF has used, or intends to use, no less than the required amount of funds received to provide HEERF grants to students.
CF has been awarded $5,063,708 under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA). It is our goal to reach as many students as possible and comply with all U.S. Department of Education guidelines. The college is required to disburse the same amount on student grants under CRRSAA as was required under the CARES Act. Therefore, $2,531,854 (50 percent) of CRRSAA funds is to be distributed to students. The other fifty percent will be used for allowable institutional needs. In addition, the institution received $427,179 in Strengthening Institutions Program (SIP) funds.

- CF has disbursed a total of $2,929,646 to 4,934 students under Section 314(a)(1) of CRRSSA. Funds have been disbursed in two phases as of September 20, 2021.
