MCC Federal Emergency Student Grant

On December 27, 2020, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) was signed into law. This law provided funds to be used for making emergency assistance grants directly to students. Priority for awarding emergency grants will be given to students with exceptional financial need, such as students who receive Federal Pell Grants. However, students who are not Pell Grant recipients or are enrolled exclusively in distance education or dual enrollment courses are also eligible to apply for an emergency assistance grant.

A student may use an emergency grant to pay for any component of their cost of attendance, including an outstanding account balance and/or tuition and fees, as well as for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or child care. In order to be eligible for an emergency assistance grant, a student must:

  • be registered for courses for the term the grant will be awarded
  • complete the Federal Emergency Grant Request form for the appropriate academic year
  • complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the same academic year (available at studentaid.gov)
  • demonstrate financial need
  • be eligible for federal funding

To apply for this free money, submit the FAFSA and emergency grant application form below.

Deadline for applications is

  • Spring 2022 apply by March 1, 2022
