Coconino Community College has CARES Act grants available to qualifying students for the upcoming fall semester.

 

 

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - Did you know that you might qualify for money to go to college this fall?

 

But you will have to apply quickly for federal financial aid.

 

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the federal government has approved funds through the CARES Act to help U.S. citizens attend college.

 

Coconino Community College has received a share of this money and will distribute it for the Fall semester to students and prospective students who qualify.

 

For the Spring and Summer semesters, CCC distributed about $550,000 in CCC CARES Act grants to more than 700 students to attend classes.

 

The first step in qualifying for the CCC Cares Act grants is to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application can be found here: https://www.coconino.edu/financial-aid
