CARES Act Providing Emergency Funding to Kentucky Students

WASHINGTON, DC — Kentucky colleges will be getting millions from the federal government to help deal with issues caused by the coronavirus.

Thursday, the University of Louisville announced it was facing a $40 million deficit as a result of the virus.  

Friday U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced Kentucky schools will receive more than $156 million in emergency relief from the U.S. Department of Education. 

The money is part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the biggest rescue package in history.

“Colleges and universities made the tough decisions to cancel in-person classes to protect the health of their communities, causing substantial disruption in the lives of students. Many of these students needed our help, and this urgent grant funding can provide vital support to help them make it through this crisis,” said McConnell.

The Department of Education says the emergency aid can be used by students for course materials, technology, housing, food, healthcare, and childcare costs.
