MD Colleges Receive Pandemic Relief Funds

Rescue Plan

Rep. Steny H. Hoyer and other members of Maryland’s congressional delegation announced that more than $543.8 million in American Rescue Plan funding was awarded to the state’s colleges, universities, and students.

The funding will help local institutions cope with the financial fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. At least half of the funding for each institution will be distributed in the form of emergency cash grants to students who are facing hunger, homelessness and other hardships. Students should contact their institutions for more information about how they can apply for an emergency grant.

“The success of our local colleges and universities is critical to the success of our economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” the lawmakers wrote in a news release. “The American Rescue Plan makes a historic investment that will ensure the doors to higher education remain open here in Maryland and provide struggling students with the resources they need to stay on track and complete their degrees.”

The American Rescue Plan provides $36 billion total for nearly 3,500 public and private, nonprofit colleges and universities nationwide. In Maryland, 47 colleges and universities will receive funding averaging $11.5 million. Another $3 billion in additional funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other under-resourced institutions will be distributed at a later date.
