More than $802,000 has been distributed to more than 720 students. Each eligible student received $1,107 from the CRRSSA act to meet any need they may have, from food and housing, to healthcare and transportation.
“Our students’ ability to meet their basic needs is a huge priority for us,” said Dr. Muriel Mickles, interim president of Danville Community College. “We are pleased to be able to disperse this aid to our students for the second time since the pandemic began.”
The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF II) provided more than $6 billion to higher-education institutions across the United States.
