CARES Act Student Assistance
As part of the Federal Government CARES Act a provision has been made to provide emergency financial support to students in the district. YCCD has $2,988,867 from the CARES Act that will be distributed to YCCD students as direct financial assistance to help cover emergency costs that they have incurred because of the disruption of campus operations related to the coronavirus. A task force, has developed a plan for distribution of funds based on financial need and enrolled units. Awards range from $250 to $500 for eligible students. The criteria used for the award modeling emphasized financial need and broad distribution.
Undocumented/DACA students and non-credit ESL students will receive the same award amounts from AB 19 funds. Funds will be distributed to students by May 22.
