Coronavirus Aid Relief & Economic Security Act (CARES Act) Information
The Baldwin Park Adult and Community Education (BPACE) program is reaching out to our students to inform them of the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund authorized by the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which is intended for our students whose lives have been impacted by the coronavirus.
The CARES Act grant must be used for expenses such as housing expenses (rent/mortgage, storage, etc.) mobile hotspot/internet access, transportation or childcare. These funds are meant for students with the greatest financial need and who can demonstrate financial hardship.
The CARES Act Grant will be awarded to qualifying students who complete a BPACE COVID-19 CARES Grant Application online.
In order to qualify for the grant students must:
- Have completed/qualified for the 2019 - 2020 FAFSA Application.
- Must have been enrolled for the Spring 2020 in one of our CTE qualified programs.*
- Be able to provide supporting documentation of need upon request, such as utility bills,
technology expenses, rent/lease agreement, etc.
- Not have received CARES Act Grant from any other educational institution.
For additional information or questions, please contact:
Martha Mantilla at firstname.lastname@example.org or
Josie Westerhausen at email@example.com
Please be advised that the Financial Aid Department will take 5 to 10 business days to review the application.
*Students that were on a Leave of Absence during Spring of 2020 or that are on a current Leave of Absence, so not qualify for the CARES Act Grant.
