CARES Act Information

The Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act (enacted March 27, 2020) provided funding to institutions of higher education to award in the form of emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus.

Currently, UMMC’s application for CARES Act funds is closed but will reopen if new funds are received.
