About the CARES Act
We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically affected your lives. It has caused many of you to experience significant emotional and financial stress while trying to keep yourselves and your families healthy and safe.
Green River College has been allocated funds from the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. The CARES Act established and funded the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) to provide emergency financial aid grants. These critical funds will help eligible GRC students cover expenses related to unanticipated travel, additional technology requirements, or other needs related to an emergency situation.
Green River College is here for you and we want to help you succeed!
During this uncertain time, we want to support you with the tools necessary to continue and complete your educational journey. Therefore, we are excited to announce that additional funding is available from the CARES Act, and other Green River emergency resources, to support students with expenses, including technology, course materials, and living expenses.
