The Trump Administration Continues to Champion HBCUs Through The CARES

April 10, 2020

 

Secretary Betsy DeVos announced America’s colleges and universities, including HBCU’s, impacted by COVID-19 will receive $6.28 Billion in immediate relief from the U.S. Department of Education in the form of direct cash payments made available from the CARES ACT signed into law by President Trump which allotted more than $14 Billion for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.

 

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund provides cash grants to students for expenses related to disruptions to their educations due to the COVID-19 outbreak, including things like:

  • course materials

  • technology

  • food

  • housing

  • health care

  • childcare

 

The U.S. Department of Education allocation was set by formula in the CARES Act weighted significantly by the number of full-time Pell-eligible students and takes into consideration the total population of the school and the number of students who were not enrolled full-time online before COVID-19.

 

This is in addition to the following immediate action steps taken by the Trump Administration:

  • Giving colleges and universities immediate regulatory flexibility so students’ educations could continue online

  • Setting all federally held student loan interest rates to zero percent (Extended to six months by the CARES Act)

  • Allowing borrowers to defer payments for 60 days without interest (Extended to six months by the CARES Act)

  • Stopping all federal wage garnishments and collections actions for borrowers with federally held loans in default.

 

Additional information on institution-level funding for students, including data tables, can be found here. 

Secretary DeVos’ letter to college and university presidents with additional information on this funding allocation can be found here.
