CARES Act Emergency Funding to Students reporting and disclosure information

On April 14, 2020, Atlantic Cape Community College (the College) signed and returned the Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to the U.S. Department of Education. The College assures that it intends to use no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.

 

 

Atlantic Cape Community College will receive up to $1,980,171.00 from the U.S. Department of Education under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students.

 

As of May 14, 2020, Atlantic Cape Community College has distributed $890,500.00 in Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.

45 Day Update: As of June 26, 2020, Atlantic Cape Community College has distributed $1,303,675.00 in Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.  

As of May 14, 2020, 1,061 students have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.

45 Day Update: As of June 26, 2020, 1,364 students have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act. 

 

There are an estimated 3,270 students at Atlantic Cape Community College who are eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, and who are not enrolled in an exclusively online program, and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.

 

Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act must be used to cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care).

Students seeking an Emergency Financial Aid Grant must complete a short application process affirming which categories of expenses (Food, Housing Needs, Course Materials, Technology Equipment, Technology Services, Health Care, and/ or Child Care) the student incurred resulting from the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus.  Each expense category was assigned a cost rating.  Four specific award amounts per term were established based on ranges of the cost ratings (Spring 2020: $325, $650, $975 and $1,300; Summer 2020: $250, $500, $750 and $1,000).   Based on each student’s application and expense category selection(s) certified by the student, the student will receive the respective award amount.

Students enrolled in Spring and/or Summer 2020 terms impacted by the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus who are eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, and who are not enrolled in an exclusively online program, were sent the application for the Emergency Financial Aid Grant.

 

Students enrolled in Spring and/or Summer 2020 terms impacted by the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus who are eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, and who are not enrolled in an exclusively online program, were sent the application for the Emergency Financial Aid Grant via email with the following instructions which accompanied the application link:

Based on your eligibility for Title IV funding in (term here) and the interruption of your on-campus coursework to online learning, you are invited to apply to determine CARES Act emergency relief.  In order to determine if you qualify for funding through the Federal CARES Act emergency relief grants, you must complete the following short application.

In addition, a message on the College’s Website regarding the availability of the Emergency Grant funds directs current students to check their email addresses for a link to the request form.   The message also directs students who do not receive an email with the link to the application to contact a dedicated financial aid representative for further information.
