Altierus Career College (“Altierus”) is distributing emergency government grant funding via the CARES Act. The CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) provides aid to institutions to award as emergency financial aid grants to students who have been impacted by disrupted campus operations due to COVID-19. Altierus has signed the Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Funding Certification and Agreement and returned it to the Department of Education. This documents the agreement that Altierus intends to use no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide emergency financial aid grants to students. In determining the grant amount provided to each student, Altierus elected to award the funding equally to each student eligible to apply for Title IV aid as all students faced an equal disruption to their normal course schedule as a result of the transition to distance learning.
