UPDATES ON EMERGENCY GRANTS FOR STUDENTS
The federal government has expanded assistance for students for the spring term. WCCC has emergency grant funds to assist students who have incurred additional hardships as a result of the COVID-19 displacement. This can include expenses for TUITION AND FEES (NEW FOR SPRING) housing, technology, board (food expenses) and other related educational expenses.
Click below for the spring 2021 application. To be eligible, you must have a 2020-21 FAFSA on file with the College (or have citizenship paperwork available) and be in attendance for the spring 2021 semester. Note that because the act requires students to be enrolled, funds will not be disbursed until after the start of the Spring semester (after 2/1/2021).
Use of CARES ACT funds-Student Funds
In accordance with the federal law, WCCC must disclose basic information on the CARES Act student grant program. WCCC’s latest disclosure information can be found in the attached documents:
Use of CARES ACT funds-Institutional Funds
Note that the institutional funds reports represent COVID expenses made for CARES-related charges. The CARES grant calls for 50% of the COVID funds to be spent on student funds. The College has formally requested, and is still is awaiting guidance from the US Department of Education, as to whether it can draw down institutional funds in advance of student funds. Expenses reported in the Institutional Funds are expenses incurred to date. However, the College is only drawing down funds based on the amount of student funds disbursed.
