Does the Federal Pell Grant cover only tuition? Can you get extra money?

Do the funds only cover tuition? or can one get more money since the grant is for "need based". (due to an EFC of 0000 for example)
can you get a check on the mail like the ACG? Because I checked my SAR and under transaction #1 it said that I can qualify for up to 5,350 max because of my EFC of 0000.
