CCTC’s Remaining CARES Act Funds Will Further Enhance Student Experience
Sumter, SC — Central Carolina Technical College officials are pleased to announce that Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds will once again assist students in financial need.
CCTC originally awarded approximately $1.4 million in federal funds through the CARES Act to help students whose lives were disrupted by COVID-19. Many of the students continue to face financial challenges and struggle to make ends meet.
After the initial round of grants to students, other funds were earmarked for COVID-19 related needs at the college like personal protection equipment and enhanced technology for increased online learning. The college has now released the remaining balance of funds to students who recently completed an application and met the criteria.
This emergency financial aid grant is designed to help cover expenses, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and childcare.
CCTC students who applied and were eligible for the second round of CARES Act funds will receive the money through the college’s Bank Mobile payment and refund system. Students are encouraged to check their college email for more information.
