The U.S. Department of Education is giving colleges more flexibility to use federal relief money provided under the second major coronavirus rescue package, which Congress passed in December. The Trump administration dictated that institutions could only use their portion of that funding on expenses incurred on or after Dec. 27, the date the legislation was signed. New agency guidance removes that restriction. Institutions are waiting for the Ed Department to release the third wave of direct aid from the latest coronavirus spending bill, which amounts to about $40 billion.
