Howard Community College offers COVID-19 special funding to students for Spring 2022 semester

Howard Community College (HCC) will disburse more than $3 million in COVID-19 special funding awards to students for the spring 2022 semester.

Throughout the pandemic, Howard Community College has offered as many opportunities for financial aid as possible and to date, has awarded $10.3 million to 5,304 students to support their college education.

The COVID-19 special funding is available to registered students who have been affected by the pandemic. Impact may include loss of personal or family income, increased utility bills, change in child care, food needs, health care needs, change in housing expenses, technology-related expenses, or expenses incurred as a result of the changes to course format and instruction. DACA students, Maryland Dream Act students, undocumented students, international and immigrant students, high school dual enrollment students, and current students are also eligible.

To be considered for special funding, students must accept the funding agreement through the HCC student portal. The COVID-19 special funding is provided through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) and is only available for the spring semester.
