What is the CARES Act?
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a federal effort that includes provisions designed to deliver emergency assistance to students and higher ed institutions impacted by the coronavirus.
Institutions must use at least 50% of the funds received under the CARES Act to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. Eligible expenses include food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care.
