CARES ACT Emergency Grant Application 

The CARES Act emergency grants are available through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund federal monies. The grants, which have a maximum award of $700, can help students recover costs for food, housing, utilities, course materials, technology expenses, childcare, healthcare and other expenses (i.e. travel/parking, PEIF) related to the COVID-19 crisis. The CARES Act emergency grant application period is through June 15. Distribution of the grants will start shortly after that date. Students who applied for 2020 Wildcat Student Relief Funds are eligible to apply for this funding as well.  Here is the link for students to apply. These funds come with some federal restrictions established by the U.S. Department of Education that were outlined in the email sent to students (i.e. U.S. citizen, degree-seeking student, filed a FAFSA, not a Global Campus student).  Students who have questions about the application process should contact the NMU Financial Aid Office at or call 906-227-2327.
