The United States Department of Education announced the specific funding that has been allocated to every postsecondary institution in the nation through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act recently passed by Congress and signed into law. Hudson County Community College will receive funds under the CARES Act to provide emergency grants to students with unforeseen emergency expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19. Eligible expenses include items in the student’s cost of attendance such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and childcare.

Eligibility Criteria:

Students who are eligible to receive federal financial aid (Title IV eligible) and are enrolled in a program that met on-campus prior to the transition to online classes due to COVID-19 can be considered for the CARES Act emergency financial aid grants.

The college aims to assist as many students as possible in meeting their emergency financial needs during this challenging time. We are all here to support you.
