CARE act for students

approx. $14.25 billion) is directed to higher education institutions

Of the approximately $14 billion dedicated to colleges and universities:  Ninety percent (approx. $13 billion) will go directly to institutions of higher education.

Institutions must use at least half of the funds they receive (for a total of approx. $6.975 billion across all institutions) to provide emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to coronavirus. These expenses include costs such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care.

“The bill specifically helps federal student loan borrowers by pausing monthly loan payments through September 30 without interest accruing; each of the months of paused payments counts toward forgiveness under Public Service Loan Forgiveness and income-driven repayment. The bill also halts all involuntary collections, which include wage garnishments and loss of tax refunds. It also ensures that borrowers who are in default will not have other emergency money provided by the federal government seized.
