Institutional Resilience and Expanded Postsecondary Opportunity Grants – Oct 20

Posted by U.S. Department of Education on September 1, 2020

The Institutional Resilience and Expanded Postsecondary Opportunity Grants program is designed “to provide financial support to IHEs with the greatest unmet needs related to coronavirus to enable them to resume operations, serve the needs of students, reduce disease transmission, and develop more resilient instructional delivery models, such as distance learning, to continue educating students who cannot or choose not to attend classroom-based instruction due to coronavirus.”

The Federal Register defines “greatest need” on page 51686, and includes a wide array of factors, such as more than 30% of full-time students receiving Pell grants, serving large numbers of part-time students, etc.

There are three competitive preference priorities: developing resilient instructional delivery models, providing dual enrollment opportunities to students who attend school in a rural community or Qualified Opportunity Zone, and IHEs participating in (or is eligible to participate in) Title III and V.
