Higher education emergency RELIEF fund

Have you heard? The Higher Education Emergency Fund (HEERF) is the new Coronavirus Aid Relief & Economic Sercurity (CARES) Act! HEERF provides emergency financial aid grants to students who are facing financial challenges due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Summer applications open July 12-July 19. Learn more and apply at Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.


All Cascadia students currently enrolled who meet the following criteria, may be eligible:

  • Must be enrolled in classes in the quarter for which you are requesting HEERF 
  • Must have expenses or needs related to the COVID-19 health crisis

Funding is limited and the college cannot guarantee that every student who is eligible will receive funding. Cascadia College prioritizes students with exceptional financial need, when processing
