Description

The main goal of the S-STEM program is to enable low-income, talented domestic students to pursue successful careers in promising STEM fields. Ultimately, the S-STEM program wants to increase the number of low-income students who graduate and contribute to the American innovation economy with their STEM knowledge. Recognizing that financial aid alone cannot increase retention and graduation in STEM, the program provides awards to Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs) to fund scholarships and to adapt, implement, and study effective evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities that support recruitment, retention, transfer (if appropriate), student success, academic/career pathways, and graduation in STEM. The program seeks to 1) increase the number of low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need obtaining degrees in S-STEM eligibledisciplinesand entering the US workforce or graduate programs in STEM; 2) improve support mechanisms for future scientists, engineers, and technicians, with a focus on low-income academically talented students with demonstrated financial need; and 3) advance our understanding of howinterventions or evidence-based curricular and co-curricular activities affectthe success, retention, transfer, academic/career pathways, and graduation of low-income students in STEM. The S-STEM program encourages collaborations among different types of participating groups, including but not limited topartnerships among different types of institutions; collaborations of STEM faculty and institutional, educational, and social science researchers; and partnerships among institutions of higher education and business, industry, local community organizations, national labs, or other federal or state government organizations,if appropriate. Scholars must be domestic low-income, academically talented students with demonstrated unmet financial need who areenrolled in an associate, baccalaureate or graduate degree program in an S-STEMeligible discipline.Proposers must provide an analysis that articulates the population of students they are trying to serve. This analysis must include the predicted number of students who meet all the eligibility requirements at the time of proposal submission as a proxy measure of the pool of students that would qualify in the future if the proposal is awarded. This number may be based on current and/or historical data about students who are currently pursuing degrees in the STEM disciplines targeted by the proposal. S-STEM Eligible Degree Programs Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Engineering, and Associate of Applied Science Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Applied Science Master of Arts, Master of Science and Master of Engineering Doctoral S-STEM Eligible Disciplines Biological sciences (except medicine and other clinical fields) Physical sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, and materials science) Mathematical sciences Computer and information sciences Geosciences Engineering Technology fields associated with the disciplines above (e.g., biotechnology,chemical technology, engineering technology, information technology) Fields of degree with the following leading-two-digit Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) codes e.g., 01.XXX) are S-STEM eligible with rare exceptions: 01, 02, 03, 11, 14, 15, 26, 27, 30, 40, 51. See: https://nces.ed.gov/ipeds/cipcode/browse.aspx?y=55 Note that programs in business schools that lead to Bachelor of Arts or Science in Business Administration degrees (BABA/BSBA) are not eligible for S-STEM funding. Proposers are strongly encouraged to contact Program Officers before submitting a proposal if they have questions concerning degree eligibility. The S-STEM program particularly encourages proposals from 2-year institutions, Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), tribal colleges and universities, and urban and ruralpublic institutions.

Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Hispanic-Serving Institutions

Competition Opens

Description

The goals of the HSI program are to enhance the quality of undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and to increase the recruitment, retention, and graduation rates of students pursuing associate's or baccalaureate degrees in STEM. Achieving these, given the diverse nature and context of the HSIs, requires additional strategies that support building capacity at HSIs through innovative approaches: to incentivize institutional and community transformation; and to promote fundamental research (i) on engaged student learning, (ii) about what it takes to diversify and increase participation in STEM effectively, and (iii) that improves our understanding of how to build institutional capacity at HSIs. Intended outcomes of the HSI Program include broadening participation of students that are historically underrepresented in STEM and expanding students’ pathways to continued STEM education and integration into the STEM workforce. The HSI program is aligned with the National Science Board's vision for, and the NSF's commitment to, a more diverse and capable science and engineering workforce.1,2 HSIs are heterogeneous and unique in many respects.3Some HSIs have well-established undergraduate STEM programs while others are just beginning to create STEM programs. Whether 2-year or 4-year, public or private, the HSIs serve a wide range of students with a diverse set of educational backgrounds. The need for tailored initiatives, policies, and practices (mindful of socio-cultural awareness) should meet the students' needs and institutions' expectations while advancing undergraduate students at HSIs toward higher levels of academic achievement in STEM. This is the motivation behind three HSI program tracks: Track 1: Planning or Pilot Projects (PPP); Track 2: Implementation and Evaluation Projects (IEP); and Track 3: Institutional Transformation Projects (ITP). Track 3, ITP,is motivated by work on organizational identities for HSIs that suggest that organizational culture and identity play a key role in the success of an HSI in promoting student success in STEM.4 The HSI program accepts proposals in the following tracks: Track 1: The Planning or Pilot Projects (PPP) track provides a funding opportunity for institutions that are new to NSF5 or are Primarily Undergraduate Institutions (PUIs6), including community colleges. The PPP has been designed to link with the other two tracks. The PPP track seeks to enhance undergraduate STEM education and build capacity at less-resourced institutions and to increase these institutions' ability to compete for NSF funding from other programs. Planning projects in this track undertake the activities necessary to develop a future HSI program Track 2 or Track 3 proposal submission. Pilot projects in this track may be carried out to achieve a short-term, well-defined goal to enhance the availability of high-quality undergraduate STEM education at the HSI and gather preliminary data for futureHSI program Track 2 or Track 3 proposals. Importantly, Pilot projects may also develop fundamental STEM education research capacity on student learning at HSIs, discovering effective means for diversifying and increasing participation in STEM. All PPP projects must include project evaluation and dissemination components. Track 2: The Implementation and Evaluation Projects (IEP) track supports the implementation of evidence-based unit-, department-, or multi-department-level activities that will enhance the quality of undergraduate STEM education.All HSI institution types are encouraged to apply, especially PUIs (including community colleges). These projects may design and implement a new educational practice or practices, and/or adapt/replicate evidence-based practices that are already known to be effective. IEP may conduct research that promotes one or more of the HSI program goals, including research on indicators of effective and successful undergraduate STEM education at HSIs. These projects must include both project evaluation and dissemination components, as well as an education research component. The IEP strategies are expected to be institutionalized and sustainable. Track 3: The Institutional Transformation Projects (ITP) track supports institution-wide structural or systemic changes to enhance undergraduate STEM education at the proposing HSI. The ITP must be grounded in STEM education research and broadening participation research and be designed to make institutional infrastructure and policy changes to support long-term institutional changes that encourage and support facultyin implementing evidence-based practices that enhance student outcomes in STEM at the proposing HSI. Under the ITP track, research (including foundational research) that improves our understanding of how to build HSI institutional capacity in STEM is encouraged. Such research should result in a strategic understanding about how the multiple components of the HSI program goals work synchronously to advance STEM education. All institution types are encouraged to apply, especially PUIs (including community colleges). Proposed activities can include adaptation of evidence-based strategies and/or the design and implementation of innovative strategies. The ITP must include both project evaluation and dissemination components, as well as an education research component. The ITP proposed structural or systemic changes are expected to be institutionalized and sustained by the HSI. All tracks may support faculty research that is inter-, multi-, or trans-disciplinary, discipline-specific research, STEM education research, discipline-based STEM education research, or broadening participation research. Research may be based at their home institution, an NSF-funded research center, another institution of higher education, and/or a national laboratory. Fundamental research is particularly encouraged on engaged student learning at HSIs, and on effectively diversifying and increasing participation in STEM at HSIs. Research-related funds may be requested for undergraduate student research, supplies, equipment required to carry out the research, and faculty research development activities. Proposed faculty research should support the overarching goals of the HSI program which seek to improve and enhance undergraduate STEM education, including undergraduate student research experiences. Proposed research should also explain how it will catalyze new faculty research activity in addition to supporting on-going faculty research activities. Each faculty member receiving funds to conduct research must include a four-page Faculty Research Plan in which one to two pages are used to describe the faculty member's track record in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), mentoring, and advancing diverse students in STEM. All projects must generate new knowledge through project evaluation activities and articulate a plan for dissemination of findings. Track 2 (IEP) and Track 3 (ITP) proposals must additionally generate new knowledge about how to improve access to and/or the quality of STEM education through a well-constructed STEM education research plan that is aligned with the project’s goals. Additionally, proposals must provide institutional data with a narrative explaining the institution's need for the project and its ability to enhance the quality of undergraduate STEM education. 1 Vision 2030, National Science Board, https://www.nsf.gov/nsb/publications/2020/nsb202015.pdf 2 Building the Future Investing in Innovation and Discovery: NSF Strategic Plan 2018-2022. https://www.nsf.gov/publications/pub_summ.jsp?ods_key=nsf18045. 3 National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. 2019.

Description

DE-FOA-0002398 titled, University Training and Research for Fossil Energy ApplicationsThis funding opportunity will encompass two separate university programs, each with its own requirements and each with restricted eligibility. The two programs are the University Coal Research (UCR) Program and the Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions (HBCU-OMI) Program. Each section of this document will be subdivided into a UCR section and an HBCU-OMI section to clearly address the requirements for each program. University Coal Research (UCR) Through this FOA, the UCR Program supports the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) mission by supporting long-term, high-risk meritorious fundamental research that advances the science of coal technologies at U.S. colleges and universities. Since its inception in FY1979, the UCR Program has maintained three objectives, to be achieved simultaneously, which are: (1) sustain a national university program of research in energy and environmental science and engineering related to coal through innovative and fundamental investigations pertinent to coal conversion and utilization; (2) to maintain and upgrade the coal research capabilities and facilities of U.S. colleges and universities; and (3) to support the education and training of our next generation of scientists and engineers. The FOA will offer areas of research that address specific problems for overcoming barriers in technology development for Fossil Energy in an environmentally acceptable manner. Historically, the involvement of professors and students has been an essential element in the success of the UCR Program. The participation of students is valuable because it serves to promote the influx of fresh ideas, and it ensures continued training of future scientists and engineers. This emphasis on U.S. college and university professors and students will be continued in FY2021 for all applications. To develop and sustain a national program of university research that advances the previous stated objectives, the DOE is interested in innovative and fundamental research pertinent to coal conversion and utilization. Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions (HBCU-OMI) To sustain a healthy economy and remain competitive internationally, the United States will need a highly-skilled workforce, which includes competent and dedicated scientists, engineers, and managers in technical fields. It will need not only advanced technology markets, but also knowledge of and sensitivity for culturally diverse customers and business partners. This theme is consistent with the Department of Energy Science Education Enhancement Act (42 U.S.C. § 7381) as amended by Sections 1102 and 1105 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which provides the statutory authority for U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOEs) HBCU-OMI Research and Development Program (HBCU-OMI Program). Implementation of the HBCU-OMI Program is also supported by DOE’s Strategic Plan and Strategic Plan for Minority Education Programs, both of which promote the DOE’s collaboration with HBCU-OMI. The HBCU-OMI Program is, thus, structured to support the mission of DOE. The process for supporting critical key research areas in fossil energy will be continued through this FOA. This program also supports the DOE’s mission by supporting long-term, high-risk meritorious fundamental research that advances the science of coal technologies at eligible U.S. colleges and universities. Work conducted in this program enables segments of the college population, not typically tapped for educational research in these subject areas, to advance technical skills and provide a meaningful contribution to the Fossil Energy Program in Crosscutting Research. Thus, grants awarded under this program are intended to maintain and upgrade educational, training, and research capabilities of HBCUs-OMIs in the fields of science and technology related to fossil energy resources. The key purpose of this program is to involve professors and students. Essential to the success of this program are (1) the collaborative involvement of HBCU-OMI professors and students along with the commercial sector; and (2) the establishment of linkages between the HBCU-OMI and private sector fossil energy community in the development and execution of fresh new research ideas.

Description

This Annual Program Statement (APS) publicizes the intention of the United States Government (USG), as represented by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Bureau for Global Health (GH), to fund one or multiple awards to address the overarching APS program purpose. The purpose is to accelerate reductions in maternal,newborn, and child mortality and morbidity in high-burden, USAID-supported countries by increasing the capacity of host country institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), voluntary family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) services. This main APS document (located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting) outlines the goal, purpose, expected results, and priorities of MOMENTUM (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health [MNCH/FP/RH] Services to Scale), and may result in multiple awards issued under subsequent APS Rounds. Note: When referencing MOMENTUM in this document, it is referring to the full portfolio of possible awards under this overall purpose. This specific document is an umbrella APS and will not be accepting concept papers or applications. Prospective applicants will be provided a fair opportunity to develop and submit competitive concept papers to USAID for potential funding via discrete Rounds under this APS. For the purposes of the MOMENTUM APS, a “Round” is defined as a specific program description that falls under the larger MOMENTUM APS goal,purpose, and results but is tailored to a certain focus. Under each Round,applicants will first submit a short concept paper that will be reviewed for responsiveness to the overall MOMENTUM purpose, selected results, and Round’s focus and then scored according to the evaluation criteria provided in the Round document. If an applicant is successful in the concept paper stage, applicant representatives may be invited to join a co-creation workshop. Following the co-creation process, selected applicants (individual organizations and/or consortia developed at concept paper stage or during co-creation) will be requested to submit a Full Application, the content and format of which will be provided in greater detail by the Agreement Officer. Publishing this APS does not commit USAID to make any awards. USAID also reserves the right to not conduct a co-creation workshop and request Full Applications from successful applicants at concept paper stage. Pending funding availability, there may be multiple Rounds for this APS that will all aim to meet the Purpose and Results mentioned above.

Executive Summary: The U.S. Study Abroad Branch (ECA/A/S/Q) within the Office of Global Educational Programs in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, U.S. Department of State, is pleased to announce an open competition for proposals to administer the FY2021 Increase and Diversify Education Abroad for U.S. Students (IDEAS) Program, formerly known as the Capacity Building Program for U.S. Study Abroad. The IDEAS Program advances the Bureau’s objective of supporting mutual understanding between the people of the United States and other countries by building the institutional capacity of accredited U.S. higher education institutions to increase and/or diversify U.S. student mobility abroad in support of U.S. foreign policy goals. For the purposes of this award, diversification of study abroad programming includes but is not limited to:• Expanding study abroad to new overseas destinations, particularly those that are less common study abroad destinations;• Increasing the number of study abroad students from groups that are currently underrepresented in study abroad, which may include but are not limited to first-generation students, racial/ethnic minority students, students with disabilities, and/or students from underrepresented academic disciplines; and• Increasing the number of U.S. higher education institutions offering study abroad programs, including but not limited to community colleges, Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), and institutions in states with traditionally lower study abroad numbers. The FY2021 IDEAS Program aims to increase and diversify study abroad through two main components, the administration of small grants and the implementation of capacity building initiatives. Pending availability of funds, the recipient will work in close consultation with ECA to implement these two components under this award: 1. Administration of Small Grants to Support Capacity Building: The award recipient will execute one national competition for the provision of no fewer than 20 total sub-awards of $35,000 or less to accredited U.S. higher education institutions to create, expand, and/or diversify their study abroad programs in support of U.S. foreign policy goals. Sub-awards should support programs for primarily undergraduate students. Selection criteria for sub-awards should fully reflect the overall goals and criteria for the small grants as stated in Section A of this NOFO. The award recipient will provide programmatic support and guidance to sub-award applicants and recipients and monitor the fiscal and programmatic progress of the recipients and their projects, as well as the final impact of the awards. The award recipient will provide semi-annual reports on results to ECA. Additionally, the recipient is required to alert the Program Office of any impediments to successful implementation as they arise and consult with ECA to resolve programmatic and/or financial challenges. The recipient must provide an evaluation of activities as outlined in the NOFO. 2. Implementation of Other Capacity Building Initiatives: The award recipient will design and implement initiatives for the wider U.S. study abroad community to increase and diversify U.S. student mobility abroad. These initiatives may take the form of in-person and/or virtual workshops, seminars, trainings and/or other creative mechanisms to bolster the capacity and knowledge sharing of and by U.S. higher education staff and faculty to expand American student mobility overseas. Applicants should propose at least six total virtual and/or in-person capacity building activities, which can be of various formats and lengths, for the wider higher education community. For any in-person activities, proposals should include relevant funding to enable broad and diverse participation of U.S. higher education representatives, including those requiring financial support to participate. Applicants proposing in-person activities should provide justification for in-person meeting costs and rationale for why meeting in-person is necessary to the activities’ success. Proposals for this element should not exceed $150,000 in total. Please see the full announcement for details.

Description

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Early Childhood Comprehensive Systems: Health Integration Prenatal-to-Three Program (ECCS). The purpose of this program is to build integrated maternal and early childhood systems1 of care that are equitable, sustainable, comprehensive, and inclusive of the health system, and that promote early developmental health and family well-being and increase family-centered access to care and engagement of the prenatal-to-3 (P–3) population. The goals for the ECCS program are to: 1) Increase state2-level infrastructure and capacity to develop and/or strengthen statewide maternal and early childhood systems of care; 2) Increase coordination and alignment between maternal and child health (MCH) and other statewide systems that impact young children and families to advance a common vision for early developmental health and family well-being; 3) Increase the capacity of health systems to deliver and effectively connect families to a continuum of services that promote early developmental health and family well-being, beginning prenatally; 4) Identify and implement policy and financing strategies that support the funding and sustainability of multigenerational, preventive services and systems for the P–3 population; and 5) Increase state-level capacity to advance equitable and improved access to services for underserved P–3 populations. To advance these goals, recipients will pursue the following core objectives: 1) Increase the number of family and professional leaders engaged in state-level maternal and early childhood initiatives; 2) Develop (or strengthen) and implement a cross-sector state-level maternal and early childhood strategic plan that integrates health with other P–3 systems and programs; 3) Increase the participation of health providers (including obstetricians and pediatricians) in coordinated intake and referral systems (CIRS) or other centralized intake and data coordination efforts for the maternal and P–3 population; 4) Demonstrate progress toward critical policy and financing changes, as identified in state maternal and early childhood strategic plans; and 5) Set specific and measurable P–3 health equity goals in the statewide early childhood strategic plan. ECCS goals and objectives aim to increase statewide access to integrated, effective, culturally appropriate, evidence-based early developmental health and family well-being promotion, prevention, and early intervention practices and services during the prenatal and early childhood period. Earlier family engagement in high-quality comprehensive services supports long-term family protective factors, reductions in risks to health and development, and improvements in indicators of health and well-being.3 See Appendix B for the ECCS program logic model and core assumptions underlying the program.

Competition Closes

03/24/2021

Description

The Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) invites eligible applicants to submit applications developing interventions to educate teens and young adults about the financial, legal, and emotional responsibilities of parenthood. The primary goal of the grant projects is to leverage the child support program’s expertise on the legal and financial responsibilities of parenting to educate and motivate teens and young adults to postpone parenthood until after they have completed their education, started a career, and entered a committed relationship. The target populations for these three-year grant projects are teens and young adults ages 13-25, including unmarried parents and those who have not yet started families. The grant project design should identify existing public and private entities serving similar populations and establish and/or leverage partnerships to connect educational and motivational programs to additional supportive services promoting economic stability and healthy family formation. Grant project designs will build on, adapt, and enhance existing responsible parenting, paternity, and child support awareness models as well as develop new educational materials and tools. Grantees are expected to collaborate with state or tribal universities to evaluate their projects and to share project materials and resources, intervention lessons, and promising practices for outreach developed as part of the grant project with other state and tribal IV-D agencies. The first cohort of this program will be awarded in FY 2020 (see HHS-2020-ACF-OCSE-FD-1832), and this FOA is for a second cohort of this program to be awarded in FY 2021. The second cohort will be required to participate in peer learning opportunities with the first cohort. OCSE is interested in proposals for projects targeting different priority sub-populations or substantially different approaches or geographic areas for FY 2020 Course for Economic Mobility and Responsible Parenting Cohort 2 recipients.

04/19/2021

Description

The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) administers the nutrition assistance programs of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The mission of FNS is to work with partners to provide food and nutrition education to people in need in a way that inspires public confidence and supports American agriculture. Among these nutrition assistance programs are the Child Nutrition Programs, including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), and the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Administered by State agencies, the Child Nutrition Programs help fight hunger and obesity by reimbursing organizations such as schools, child care centers, and afterschool programs for providing nutritionally balanced meals to children at low or no cost.Team Nutrition Training Grants are authorized under Public Law 111–296, which amended Section 19 of the Child Nutrition Act of 1966. As authorized under Section 6(a)(3) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, 42 USC 1755(a)(3), FNS provides training and technical assistance for school nutrition professionals, nutrition education for children and their caregivers, and encourages school and community support for healthy eating and physical activity. These activities are implemented under the Agency’s Team Nutrition initiative. Team Nutrition Training Grants have been a part of the Team Nutrition initiative since its inception in 1995. These grants have provided State agencies with funds to implement training and nutrition education within the Child Nutrition Programs in their State.On October 16, 2020, the USDA FNS awarded over 4.1 million in funding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Development (Cohort A) Grantees consisting of fifteen State agencies that administer the NSLP. The FY2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Recipe Development (Cohort B) focuses on the same grant purpose and objectives as the Cohort A grant, and is open to State agencies administering the NSLP that did not receive a FY2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Development in October 2020 as part of Cohort A.The FY 2021 Team Nutrition Training Grant for School Meal Recipe Development supports States in understanding, developing, and using standardized recipes within the School Meal Programs. Using grant funds, States will be able to develop nutritious and tasty recipes that incorporate local agricultural products and appeal to students’ taste preferences. States will build their capacity to standardize recipes, show how standardized recipes credit towards school meal pattern requirements, and assist School Food Authorities in engaging students in menu development. Standardized recipes are critical to the success of school meals because they provide consistent results in quality, quantity, and nutrient contribution, while helping to reduce food waste and food costs. FNS intends to share the recipes States develop under this grant via the FNS Team Nutrition website and the Institute of Child Nutrition’s online resource center known as the Child Nutrition Recipe Box (https://theicn.org/cnrb).

Background: On December 27, 2020, the President signed into law the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) (P.L. 116-260). This new law makes available approximately $22.7 billion for institutions of higher education under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), with funding devoted to programs previously authorized under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) Act (P.L. 116-136), as well as funding for certain programs newly authorized under CRRSAA. With this notice, the Secretary is announcing that proprietary institutions of higher education as defined in section 102(b) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, 20 USC 1002(b), may apply for HEERF grant funds under the new CRRSAA section 314(a)(4) program, Proprietary Institution Grant Funds for Students (CFDA 84.425Q). The estimated available funds for this program is approximately $680 million. Allocations for eligible proprietary institutions of higher education will be calculated on the basis of the formula in section 314(a)(1)(A) through (F). Under section 314(d)(7), awards from the Proprietary Institution Grant Funds for Students program may only be used to provide financial aid grants to students (including students exclusively enrolled in distance education), 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, housing, health care (including mental health care), or child care. In making such financial aid grants to students, grantees must prioritize grants to students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell Grants. Proprietary institutions that did not receive a CARES Act section 18004(a)(1) award but are on the Department’s published section 314(a)(1) allocation table for CRRSAA may apply for and receive (a)(4) funds. Pursuant to CRRSAA section 314(f), an institution must apply for funds within 90 days of the publication of this notice. However, please note that institutions that have not yet complied with the reporting requirements of the CARES Act may receive awards with a restriction on the ability to drawdown those awarded funds (stop payment status) until the institution has satisfied its CARES Act HEERF reporting obligations.
