SUNY Cortland awarded $6M emergency grant

Local News

SUNY Cortland was recently awarded more than $6M in higher education emergency relief funding, part of an overall $42M package drawn up in the federal CARES Act.

The money is meant to help bridge the financial gap as students and teachers continue to stay home to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Cortland’s award was announced Friday by Congressman Anthony Brindisi, along with grants for several other universities in New York’s 22nd Congressional District (full list at bottom of page).

It follows announcement earlier this month of a new Student Emergency Fund established by SUNY Cortland’s College Foundation, intended to help those suffering from any setbacks currently posing a threat to their education.

Tompkins Cortland Community College launched a similar initiative on Friday by expanding its own student emergency fund to include new types of emergency expenses like those associated with the change to remote learning like tablets, internet connectivity, and specialty software.

Students at TC3 can also apply for funds to help them deal with unanticipated medical and transportation needs.
