The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is advising all State Grant applicants who have suffered severe casualty losses as a result of Hurricane Sandy - regardless of their prior eligibility determination - to complete and submit a Casualty Loss Form for possible reconsideration of their State Grant award eligibility.

The Casualty Loss Form is available online at www.pheaa.org/casualty-loss.

It is PHEAA's policy to give special consideration to a student's State Grant application when it is determined that the family's ability to finance educational costs has been reduced as a result of losses incurred due to fire, storm or other unforeseeable circumstances.

PHEAA State Grant and Special Programs representatives are available to answer questions at (800) 692-7392.
