Brief Abstract

Extended Abstract

As additional funds become available for higher education administrators as part of the CARES Act 2nd round - what types of programs can benefit from these funds and what factors are most important in determining if they will be eligible. We will look at the guidelines for this round of funding and discuss which types of institutions and whether only full time students qualify. We will look at some best practices for submitting the additional paperwork required for these grants and discuss important changes that will help community colleges and minority-serving institutions.
