The latest information about 2020-21 Campus-Based Programs, including some on the CARES Act, is included in the newly released Volume 6 of the Federal Student Aid Handbook.

In a November 20 Electronic Announcement, the Department of Education presented Volume 6 of the handbook, providing it in a master file as well as providing each chapter separately.

The introduction includes information on significant changes for 2020-21, including guidance on the temporary expansion of Federal Work Study transfer authority under the CARES Act and instructions on implementing the Emergency CARES Act waiver of FSEOG and FWS nonfederal share.
