Program Funding

The 2024 fiscal year (July 1, 2023 – June 30, 2024) appropriation for the Grant Programs of Police, Fire, or Correctional Officers is $1,300,000.


2023-24 PFC Certification of Enrollment for Payment rosters for the fall term were e-mailed to financial aid directors in mid-October, initiating the payment process.

Although the fall-term payment request deadline date (i.e., the date by which Certification of Enrollment for Payment rosters should be returned to ISAC) was November 30, 2023, colleges that have not already done so are still encouraged to complete and submit the rosters as soon as possible. The timely submission of payment requests allows ISAC staff to monitor remaining funds and award other students, as applicable.

More information about the PFC payment process is provided at the PFC Payment Procedures page within this section.


The application for the 2023-24 Grant Programs for Dependents of Police, Fire, and Correctional Officers is available to download and print. In order to receive full-year consideration, an application must have been received on or before October 1, 2023. For spring-term and summer-term consideration, the deadline date was March 1, 2024. For summer-term consideration only, applications must be received on or before June 15, 2024. Applications received by ISAC after these deadline dates will be processed only for subsequent terms, with June 15, 2024 as the final date of acceptance for the summer term.
