Apply Now

As a North Florida College student, you may be eligible for an emergency financial aid grant from the Higher Education Emergency Funds program that is part of the CRRSA Act.

What is the CRRSA Act?  The CRRSA Act funds were provided as an additional supplement to the CARES Act.  Specifically, colleges and universities were provided additional funds under the CRRSA Act to provide students with financial aid grants, which may be used for any component of the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, healthcare (including mental health care) or child care. 


NFC retains discretion to determine the amount and availability of each individual financial aid grant.  As such, for the Spring 2021 semester, the following eligibility requirements apply, students must be:

  1. Currently enrolled at NFC for the Spring 2021 semester. 
  2. Recipient of a Federal Pell Award for the 2021 aid year, or otherwise can demonstrate an exceptional need that is not otherwise met.
