Students will soon be able to apply for Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act funding. CRRSA Act funding is the second round of the federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds. Wenatchee Valley College will receive $4.3 million, $1.2 million of which will be distributed directly to students.

Student CRRSA Act funding will provide direct emergency cash grants to college students whose lives and educations have been disrupted by the pandemic.

WVC will make an application available in the month of April. Students can sign up to be notified when it is ready atwvc.edu/ReliefFunds.

Current and new students are eligible to apply. The funds must be spent within one year of allocation. At this time, it does not appear that DACA/Undocumented students will be eligible.
