In an Aug 26, 2021 Electronic Announcement, we informed schools about the distribution of 2021–22 Supplemental Campus-Based funds. In this announcement, we provide updated information related to the partial distribution of Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) supplemental funds to schools located in areas that have been impacted by Hurricane Ida or the California wildfires. Note: Federal Work-Study (FWS) will be allocated through the normal funding process as described in the Aug 26, 2021 Electronic Announcement.
Distribution of Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Funds
For the distribution of FSEOG funds, the information in this announcement supersedes the Aug. 26, 2021, announcement. By Sept 30, 2021, the Department of Education (the Department) will reallocate a portion of the supplemental FSEOG funds to schools located in areas that have been directly affected by Hurricane Ida or the California wildfires and had eligibility for supplemental funding. The remaining portion of supplemental FSEOG funds will be distributed to all other schools with eligibility for supplemental funding. Schools are only able to receive FSEOG funding up to the amount requested on the Fiscal Operations Report for 2019–20 and Application to Participate for 2021–22 (FISAP). The purpose of the FSEOG program is to provide grant funding to assist qualified students who demonstrate financial need. We strongly encourage schools to award FSEOG funds to needy students, particularly those who are affected by Hurricane Ida, or the California wildfires.
Schools receiving supplemental funding will be notified by email. This email is sent to the Financial Aid Administrator identified on the most recently submitted FISAP, or as updated on the "Demographics" page on the COD website.
In the email, schools will be referred to their Statement of Account on the COD website which will reflect the supplemental award amount for each program.
To access the Statement of Account, schools should follow these steps:
From the School tab, select the “Campus-Based System” link from the left navigation menu
Select “Self-Service,” then “Notifications” from the left navigation menu
