Emergency Assistance for Postsecondary Students Grant Program

Request for Proposals Available for Emergency Assistance for Postsecondary Students

On May 31, 2017, Governor Mark Dayton signed a higher education bill which adds an additional $210 million investment into need-based aid for students, institutional support, and funding for programs that support student access and success. A part of this funding will be used to support the Minnesota Office of Higher Education's Emergency Assistance for Postsecondary Students competitive grants for fiscal years 2018 and 2019.

The Minnesota Office of Higher Education is currently accepting proposals from Minnesota postsecondary institutions for the EAPS Grant Program. $175,000 will be awarded each year of the biennium to postsecondary institutions with a demonstrable homeless population who are committed to supporting low-income students in overcoming hurdles that may prevent them from staying in college.

Grant applications will be reviewed by a committee comprised of community stakeholders, who will make award recommendations to the Office of Higher Education. FY 2018 projects will be funded through June 30, 2019. The deadline for receipt of proposals is 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 2, 2018.

A technical assistance session for interested parties will be held at 10:00am on Monday, February 5, 2018 at the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. A call-in option will be made available. If you are interested in attending this session in person or by phone, please contact Kelly Gibson, Kelly.Gibson@state.mn.us or (651) 259-3906.
