Additional Information about CRRSAA

Student Aid Grants are available to Lone Star College students thanks to the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA), passed by Congress on December 27, 2020. The COVID-19 global pandemic continues to disrupt and create challenges in the everyday lives of people across the country and the world. We plan to assist as many of our students as possible with these Student Aid Grants to support continuing your education and balancing your other responsibilities. These funds may be used for any component of cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as food, housing, health care (including mental health care) and childcare. Students that receive CRRSAA Student Aid Grants do not have to repay them.
