Access VR- single mom on disability

My daughter is a senior(IEP-Math disability).We are doing the college search.I attended an Access VR meetinglast year at my daughter’s school.I am on SSDI Disability w/Lyme after 27 years of teaching. After the meeting, I was told most if not all of my daughters expenses would be covered by Access VR if I could show my award letter.We are now making some very difficult colleges decisions as we would like to have everything wrapped up by Oct.1.I have send in my Access application and it’s very difficult to get answers with the financial piece
Looking at Buffalo State University.(COA ~26,000)
EFC~ About 4,500 Tap ~3500 Pell ~2500 Direct Loan~4,500
Looks like ~ 11,000 out of pocket

Wondering if there is anyone out here with AccessVR Experience that can tell me how much I can expect with financial support.
Is there a total I can expect after Tap/Pell.If I’m understanding what I read, Through
Access VR,I can expect a contribution of $8,000 towards my outstanding out of pocket expense.

I would appreciate any input/ clarification? How is the contribution reported w/FAFSA.
Thank you

    I am not familiar with AccessVR, and I couldn’t really figure it out by looking at the website. There may be some here who can offer opinions. However, my suggestion is to email AccessVR with your question. They can definitely help you, and I am sure they will be happy to do so.

    This sounds like a NYS program. @sybbie719, do you know anything about it?
