CARES Act

What Is The CARES Act?

TLU received funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to assist students who were affected financially due to disruption of university campus operations.

Fund Reporting

Quarterly Expenditure Report for awards under CARES Act Sections 18004(a)(1) Institutional Portion, 18004(a)(2), and 18004(a)(3), if applicable.

Student Funds

  • TLU signed and returned to the U.S. Department of Education the Certification and Agreement. TLU spent no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to its students.
  • TLU received funds totaling $704,097 from the Department of Education pursuant to our Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students.
  • As of July 14, 2020, TLU distributed $704,097 in Emergency Financial Aid Grants under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to 1,141 students. The awards ranged from $396 to $5,566.
  • At that time, TLU had an estimate of 1,186 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.
  • The July 14, 2020 report is the final report covering all HEERF expenditures for Section 18004(a)(1) Student Portion funds.

How to Apply

Because funds for the Student Portion of the HEERF Section 18004(a)(1) have been exhausted, TLU is no longer accepting applications for student emergency aid through that program. In order to have received funds, students must have completed the emergency aid application provided HERE or upon request. Funds were granted for student expenses that were related to TLU’s campus closure due to COVID-19. Eligible expenses included: food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare. Note: Grants were awarded for expenses but not lost pay.

Guidance provided by the U.S. Department of Education stated that TLU may not use the emergency financial aid grants to satisfy a student’s outstanding account balance. The Department of Education notes that the student may use his or her emergency financial aid grant for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus.
