COVID-19 Higher Education Relief Funds: $14B Provided by the CARES Act

April 21, 2020

In recent communications with many of your peers, our team has quickly picked up on trends relating to institutional and departmental budget cuts. In a time where educators are scrambling to determine how to effectively teach anatomy courses online, shutting off access to these resources can be detrimental. Under the CARES Act, your institution will likely benefit from relief funds provided by the Department of Education to cover the costs associated with transitioning your courses to an online/remote learning environment.

In the upcoming months, higher education institutions across the U.S. will be receiving a total of $14 billion dollars in relief funds to help cover costs originating from COVID-19. These funds can be used to support new resources required to adapt to alternative learning environments, as well as for student grants to cover the cost of food, housing, technology, and more.
