Due to the heightened risk associated with proprietary institutions, the Department determined it necessary to obtain additional certifications prior to making further awards under the (a)(4) funding stream. Without approval of the Required Proprietary Institution Certifications form, the Department would have been forced to delay making ARP (a)(4) awards to these institutions. Delay of ARP (a)(4) awards would be particularly problematic, as Congress has designated these funds as being solely directed to emergency financial aid grants to students at these institutions.
