LRCC is expecting details later in January about anticipated federal funds for students enrolled in the spring 2021 term. As a result of the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) Act of 2020, LRCC was able to disburse over $200,000 in emergency grants to students. While we do not yet have specifics on this second stimulus package, LRCC encourages all returning and new students to complete a 2021 FAFSA as soon as possible.
LRCC has committed scholarships funds to help students continue their education this Spring term. The information provided on the FAFSA will be used to determine eligibility for both federal and scholarship funds.
Deal would also simplify FAFSA and let more prisoners get Pell Grants. And $1.3 billion in loans to Black colleges would be forgiven.
