AAU, Associations Ask ED to Withdraw Proposed Information Collection on Use of HEERF Funds

AAU joined ACE and six other higher education associations in sending a comment letter asking the Department of Education to withdraw its proposed information collection on reporting requirements for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund program. The letter emphasizes that while institutions understand the importance of being transparent about how they used HEERF funds, the extensively revised reporting requirements “may be beyond the reasonable ability of institutions to comply with.” The letter asks ED to leave the existing information collection on HEERF funds in place and to convene stakeholders to “develop a more comprehensive and achievable reporting method that meets our shared goals for understanding how institutional funds were used and how students with the greatest need were aided.”
