Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic (CARE} Act

Policy and Procedure
Grant Award P425E205068

The U.S. Department of Education has awarded Fort Pierce Beauty Academy and its two campuses, Port St Lucie Beauty Academy and Beauty and Massage Institute, the Coronavirus And Relief Emergency (CARE) Grant in the amount of $221,562.00. In accordance with the federal regulations we have established a policy and procedure for the disbursement of funds to our students using one of the suggested methods of calcula­tion. This Grant allocates that 100% of the emergency financial aid grant must be exclusively for the stu­dents.

Our institution chose the Pell Grant for means of which to preform our calculation. The following calculation has been used to determine total disbursement amount for each student using their individual weekly sched­uled hours and then the payment periods used to distribute funds:
Our institution’s total award of $221,562 was divided by our students total schedule hours per week of 2924 equaling $75.00/clock hour. This is the hourly rate used for calculation. Multiply this hourly rate by stu­dent’s current weekly schedule hours to obtain the eligibility for that student. Examples: A student with 30 clock hours per week will receive a CARE act grant In the amount of $2250 a 16 clock hours per week student will receive $1200. Each student will be eligible for only one grant, and only one application will be consid­ered per student. The grant may be issued in two separate payments to better assist with on going financial needs. All disbursements will be accounted for by means of posting directly to each student’s ledger titled as CARE (Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Act). Only students who are participating in courses actively and who are in good standing will be eligible to receive a grant.

All students may fill out the request for the CARE Act Grant. Only students that qualify for assistance by means of completing the FAFSA application will be eligible to request these funds. The request application clearly states only students who are participating in courses actively and who are in good standing will be eligible to receive a grant. Request applications must be returned to the Financial Aid Director, Mrs. Debra Hohn as soon as possible as funds are to be distributed in an accurate and prompt fashion.

The total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act as of September 9, 2020, is $153,087.50. The estimated total number of students at the institution who are or could be eligible to participate in the Federal student financial aid programs under Section 484 of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended, and thus are eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 123 students. The total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 121 students.

We are disbursing with complete transparency and accountability, making sure everyone knows the formula used to determine the emergency financial aid grant. We are posting this policy and procedure on our web­site to allow full disclosure to the public as well as our student body and staff.
