ARP Act Emergency Financial Aid

Distribution of Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students

For the reporting period of October 1, 2021, through December 31, 2021, $1,630,430 ($1,627,233 from Emergency Financial Aid funds and $3,197 from Emergency Institution funds) has been distributed by NRCC to students under Section 18004(a)(1) ARP Act.

The estimated total number of students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) for the ARP Act is 1,299.

The total number of students for whom Emergency Financial Aid Grants have been processed under Section 18004(a)(1) of the ARP Act for the reporting period ending December 31, 2021, is 1,299.

Eligibility

NRCC disbursed 100% of the funds without further application to students whose Title IV eligibility had already been established in accordance with Section 484 of the Higher Education Act. In accordance with the ARP Act, NRCC directed funds to students who demonstrated the most financial need as per the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) on file. The following additional criteria were used to determine funds disbursement:

  • Students were enrolled in 6 or more credits during the Fall 2021 semester
  • Students had an EFC (Effective Family Contribution) of $999,999 or less per the FAFSA

Method

The method used to determine how much students would receive under Section 18004 (a)(1) of the ARP Act is as follows:

  • Approximately 67.18% ($1,095,270) of funding was made to Pell eligible students as per the FAFSA with independent students awarded slightly more than dependent.
    • Total funding for independent students - $607,590
    • Total number of independent students meeting criteria – 387
    • Awards made at $1,570 per independent student
    • Total funding for dependent students - $487,680
    • Total number of dependent students meeting criteria – 384
    • Awards made at $1,270 per dependent student
  • Approximately 32.82% ($535,160) of funding was made to students whose EFC was $999,999 or less but non-Pell eligible as per the FAFSA with independent students awarded slightly more than dependent.
    • Total funding for independent students - $112,240
    • Total number of independent students meeting criteria – 92
    • Awards made at $1,220 per independent student
    • Total funding for dependent students - $422,920
    • Total number of dependent students meeting criteria – 436
    • Awards made at $970 per dependent student

Funds were disbursed directly to students. If a student owed a balance to the school, these funds were not applied to that balance. Disbursements were sent to students per their previously selected refund method (direct deposit or paper check).
