THIS YEARS SUPPLEMENTAL FWS WILL GO TO HELP HURRICANE VICTIMS

Recently, the Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria Education Relief Act of 2017 was passed and as a result, Federal Student Aid has adjusted the reallocation process for supplemental FWS funds to assist those students impacted by the hurricanes. Normally supplemental funds are reallocated to other eligible schools but the new legislations provides supplemental FWS funds to be allocated to schools that are in the FEMA-declared disaster areas, and schools that have enrolled a significant number of students that live in the FEMA-declared disaster areas. to work with Congress on additional flexibilities for hurricane-impacted students and schools. Schools are strongly encouraged to award these funds to students impacted by the hurricanes.
