In response to the COVID-19 crisis, funds have been made available through the CARES Act to award emergency grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus. Eligible expenses include food, housing, health care, childcare, transportation, technology, and other course materials. Complete and submit this form if you, the student, have been directly impacted by the COVID-19 disruption. As a need-based Pell eligible student during the Spring 2021 semester at Westchester Community College, you are eligible for an award through the CARES Act. After completing and submitting this form, you will receive your funding within two weeks as outlined in the email you previously received. Awards will be granted in order of submitted Certification Statements, until funds are exhausted.
I certify that I have or will incur allowable expenses of food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, childcare, and/or transportation as a result of the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. I understand that it is my responsibility to notify the Financial Aid office immediately if I will not incur expenses that meet or exceed the amount of my award. I acknowledge that I have read and understood the CARES Act grant eligibility requirements as noted in the Westchester Community College Cares Act Grant communication previously sent to me.
