Summer 2020 CARES Act Survey
Philadelphia Futures conducted a survey of students in the College Success Program regarding access to and utilization of CARES Act funding through their colleges and universities. The survey covered: ease of access to funding, needs experienced by students as a result of the sudden shift to remote learning, needs met by CARES Act funds and anticipated needs if schools continue to operate remotely.
What is the CARES Act funding for college students?
In addition to guidelines for school loan repayment and direct aid for colleges and universities, the CARES Act provided federal funds for emergency, one-time assistance to help respond to COVID-19 impacts on
students. These funds were channeled through the colleges and universities, and how they were disbursed to students varied school to school.
