UPDATE: ALL CARES FUNDS HAVE BEEN DISBURSED. NO FURTHER APPLICATIONS OR REQUESTS ARE BEING ACCEPTED.
The federal government recently passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. A portion of this legislation is to support college and university students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn.
The CARES Act provides money to cover student expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. Eligible expenses include those considered as the student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare.
The CARES Act does exclude the following students from receiving awards:
The list of eligible students is based on those enrolled as of March 6, 2020. Eligible students will receive a base award of $275. Pell Eligible students as determined by the 2019-2020 FAFSA will receive a base award and additional funding based on their enrollment level. Money will be transferred to direct deposit bank accounts on file. If students do not have a direct deposit bank account set up, a check will be mailed to the address listed in eServices.
Additional CARES grant funds are available for students who have incurred extra cost of attendance expenses due to the spring 2020 COVID-19 campus disruption. To apply for additional emergency grant funds, an application has been specifically designed to address special circumstances related to the COVID-19 campus closure. Students who have had to return to campus to complete Spring 2020 courses after the last day of the term (May 14th ) may qualify for additional funds. Students must meet eligibility requirements outlined by the CARES Act to qualify.
If you would like an application or have questions about the CARES Special Circumstances Grant, please contact Lisa Bottem at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-683-8544.
