COVID-19 Student Emergency Aid
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed into law on March 27, 2020, created education stabilization funds available through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). At least half of these funds must provide students with access to emergency financial aid grants to help cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19.
Salina Area Technical College has received funds totaling $203,959 for institutional and student use from the Department of Education under the CARES Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. Of that amount, $101,980 is to be used toward our student’s needs. SATC has signed and returned to the Department the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that the institution has used, or 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. As of October 30, 2020, SATC has awarded students $101,960. For Spring 2020, 40 students applied and have benefited from the funds available out of 128 students eligible. For Fall 2020, 65 additional students who were Pell-eligible received funding ranging from $500-860. From Spring 2021 through Fall 2o21, 87 additional students received Emergency Financial Aid Grants totaling $109,415 using both student and institutional funds ranging from $500-$2000 each.
This fund was created to assist college students whose lives have been disrupted, many of whom are facing financial challenges and struggling to make ends meet. The funds can 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 are able to apply for emergency aid by filling out the COVID-19 Student Emergency Aid Application. Applicants will be evaluated on the following scoring criteria:
