Notice regarding reallocation of campus-based aid and waivers of statutory and regulatory provisions pursuant to the Natural Disaster Student Aid Fairness Act, Public Law 109-86.
The Natural Disaster Student Aid Fairness Act (Aid Fairness Act), Public Law 109-86, signed by the President on October 7, 2005, provides, in part, that the Secretary must reallocate unexpended Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins), Federal Work-Study (FWS), and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) program funds (campus-based funds) to institutions of higher education that are located in areas affected by Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Rita or that have enrolled eligible students who were affected by Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Rita. In this notice, we announce the reallocation process for institutions of higher education that have enrolled students affected by Hurricane Katrina or Hurricane Rita and waivers or modifications of relevant statutory and regulatory provisions. We will be addressing the reallocation of additional campus-based funds for institutions that are located in an area affected by a Gulf hurricane disaster through a separate process.
