Northwest State Community College has also been granted $481,466 in emergency relief funds for the Institutional Portion of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund Formula Grants Authorized by Section 18004(a)(1) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Initially, NSCC was required to report to the public within 30 days of receipt of the funds how the funds are being used and then update the report every 45 days thereafter. In September 2020, a new Quarterly Budget and Expenditure Reporting Under CARES Act Sections 18004(a)(1) Institutional Portion, 18004(a)(2), and 18004(a)(3) public reporting form was released and guidance was issued to post this quarterly report form no later than 10 days after the end of each calendar quarter (October 10, January 10, April 10, July 10) apart from the first report, which is due October 30, 2020. For the first report using this form, institutions must provide their cumulative expenditures from the date of their first HEERF award through September 30, 2020.
