A RCCD task force in consultation with student representatives determined how CARE Act funds will be distributed based on Department of Education eligibility criteria and need. The application — along with a scoring rubric — will guide the task force in determining awards. Only students who submit an application and demonstrate a COVID-19 related need will be eligible for monies. Funds are limited.
