$500 in grant aid being distributed to pell-eligible students

Today, Haskell Indian Nations University (HINU) announced the amount and disbursement of a Pell Eligible grant for spring pell-eligible students. The $500 payments, which started as early as May 7, are the last of three student aid grants funded by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) distributed this spring. The CRRSA was the second legislative action to provide the school with aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition to the CRRSA, a third bill, the American Rescue Plan, has now been passed into law as of May 11, allocating HINU a minimum of $1.6 million for use in future student aid.
