Update: Beginning Monday, August 23rd, 2021, Bay Mills Community College will require all employees, students, vendors, and visitors to wear masks inside campus buildings. We hoped to begin the school year without having to wear masks, but due to the number of increasing cases in our county and surrounding communities, BMCC must take the additional step of requiring the wearing of masks.

Explanation of Other Uses of Funds Quarterly Report - as of September 30, 2021
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law on March 27, 2020. The CARES Act allotted $2.2 trillion for economic aid to the American people negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Of the $2.2 trillion, approximately $14 billion was allocated to the U.S. Office of Postsecondary Education as the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) and distributed to U.S. institutions of higher education.
On December 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) was signed into law. The CRRSAA provides an additional $22.1 billion through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) to address needs directly related to the coronavirus.
After this, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into law on March 11, 2021 and provided $39.6 billion in support to institutions of higher education under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III) to serve students and ensure learning continues during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bay Mills Community College received the following supplemental grants from the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF I, II, and III):
To avoid confusion, previous information about the HEERF grants for prior semesters were removed from this webpage, but may be found at the following links:
Similar to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act with HEERF I funds, the CRRSAA - HEERF II and ARP - HEERF III funds are distributed as grants with appropriate use stipulations. The HEERF student grants under the CRRSAA and ARP Act must be used to cover expenses related to the student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or childcare. Unlike the CARES Act, the CRRSAA and ARP Act require institutions to prioritize students with exceptional need, such as students who receive Pell grants, and authorizes grants to students exclusively enrolled in distance education.
Beginning with the summer, 2021 semester, BMCC will use the term “HEERF student grant” for the student grants awarded under the CRRSAA and ARP Act.
Our goal is to distribute the HEERF student grants as widely and equitably as possible, while prioritizing students with the greatest need. We recognize that all of our students have been impacted by the coronavirus pandemic and have faced financial challenges.
To be eligible, students must meet the following criteria:
BMCC will calculate the award for Fall, 2021 semester based on student enrollment status as of October 1, 2021. BMCC is using a 3-tier approach to prioritize students with exceptional financial need based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the FAFSA.
|Student Status||$0 EFC||$1-$5,846 EFC||
or No FAFSA
| Full Time
(12 credits or more)
| Three-Quarter Time
| Half Time
| Less than Half Time
To ease the burden on students and distribute these funds more quickly, an application will not be required. BMCC has identified which students meet the eligibility requirements and will notify them by email.
Checks will be issued and mailed to the student address on file. By accepting the payment, students are certifying that they will use the HEERF student grant to cover expenses from any component of their cost of attendance and/or emergency costs that arise due to the coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care), or childcare incurred after March 13, 2020.
Students will receive this funding directly, unless the student has given written, affirmative consent to apply the grant toward the student’s account balance.
BMCC will mail checks to students on October 14, 2021.
