Learn More About CARES Act Emergency Grants

Tuesday, May 12, 2020

Last week we announced that Valencia College has received $27.6 million in funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, of which at least $13.8 million will be used to provide financial support for students whose education has been disrupted due to the coronavirus, and the remainder will be used for institutional stabilization offset costs incurred by the College related to supporting operations during this time. For more details on the CARES Act funding, watch the video discussion with College President Sandy Shugart and Faculty Association President Stanton Reed.

On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, we emailed degree-seeking students who have not completed a 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) but may be eligible to do so and be eligible for CARES. For the email, click here.

Senior leaders are currently working to finalize plans for the disbursement of funds to students and the plan for the institutional stabilization funds. More information about those plans will be shared later this month.
