Henry Ford College [HFC] (OPEID 002270) signed the Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants (Certification) under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economics Security (CARES) Act on April 15, 2020. HFC submitted the Certification to the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) on April 18, 2020, and HFC received its allocation from USDOE on April 25, 2020.

HFC has been allocated $9,153,117 under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act and HFC intends to use no less than 50% of these funds ($4,576,559) to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants directly to students.

As of December 31, 2020, HFC has distributed $4,576,559 in Emergency Financial Aid Grants directly to 3,584 HFC students, based on applications students have submitted to request these funds.

The estimated total number of HFC students 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) of the CARES Act is 9,791 students.

To be considered for an Emergency Financial Aid Grant, HFC students were required to complete an application and submit it to the HFC Office of Financial Aid. The application provided instructions to students that they must have completed a 2019-2020 FAFSA for Winter 2020 and/or Summer 2020 CARES Act Grants or a 2020-2021 FAFSA for Fall 2020 CARES Act Grants and meet all other Title IV eligibility requirements. The application also informed students that in order to be considered for a grant for the Winter 2020 semester they must have been enrolled in at least one Winter 2020 15-week, 12-week, or second 8-week class that was converted from an on-ground format to an online format, that to be considered for a grant for the Summer 2020 semester they must have been enrolled in at least one Summer 2020 class, or that to be considered for a grant for the Fall 2020 semester they must have been enrolled in at least one Fall 2020 class. The application informed the student of the method of notification, the method of disbursement, and it included information as to how and where the application should be submitted. Finally, the application required students to identify the expense(s) they incurred due to the disruption of HFC campus operations resulting in the move from on-ground classes to online classes.

Eligibility for Emergency Financial Aid Grants for HFC students was based on financial issues they faced related to moving to online coursework, such as the need for a (new) computer, internet service, software related to online courses, other technology (such as cameras, scanner, and microphones, or increased utility costs.) The HFC CARES Act Task Force developed the following guidelines for determining the Emergency Financial Aid Grant amounts:
