Student Assistance in Paying for Groceries, Bills, Lost Wages, Etc.

Eligible students should have already received one-time payments of $300 from the CARES Act to assist them with expenses due to the coronavirus. The decision was made May 13 by Alamo Colleges leadership.

Students who receive this funding may still apply for emergency financial assistance.

If students were denied CARES Act Emergency Funding, please contact the Advocacy Center so they can assist with the appeal process.

Students can get help paying for groceries, healthcare expenses, rent, utility bills, childcare or have technology challenges working remotely. They can contact NVC by email at nvc-advocacyctr@alamo.edu.
