Emergency Grants

Hennepin Tech Crisis Grant

Emergency Assistance for Postsecondary Students Grant Program

The Office of Higher Education administers the Emergency Assistance for Postsecondary Students (EAPS) Grant Program to foster postsecondary attendance and retention for low-income students by providing funding and resources to Minnesota colleges and universities with a demonstrable homeless population.
