Colleges and universities across the country have benefitted greatly from the COVID-19 relief aid appropriated to higher education by Congress via the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). While much discussion of HEERF has centered on the primary portion of aid known as the (a)(1) allocations that most schools have received, there has been less discussion of how institutions that also received (a)(2) allocations, those earmarked for particular institution types, have utilized these less restricted funds.

In this episode, NACUBO’s senior director of government affairs, Megan Schneider talks with Juan Castillo, vice president of finance and administration at Texas A&M International University (TAMIU) about how TAMIU has used its HEERF (a)(2) allocations in new and innovative ways to support student success and meet community needs.
