Wytheville Community College (WCC) received and began distributing funding provided by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to eligible students on May 12, 2020. WCC distributed $605,000 to students that met eligibility criteria during the Spring 2020 semester. CARES Act guidance states that these funds are to be directed toward costs associated with the significant changes to the delivery of instruction due to the coronavirus.

This first round of funds was distributed to eligible students in accordance with Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act. Funding was provided to Title IV eligible WCC students who were enrolled in 6 or more credit hours, not enrolled in only online classes, and had an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $13,000 or less per their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) during the Spring 2020 semester.

WCC’s total allocation under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is in the amount of $1,217,475. Beyond the Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students, WCC is following guidelines to develop a plan for how the remaining funds will be used as the college continues to provide instruction and services during the pandemic.
