CHEFA in the Community: CSCU Receives CHEFA COVID-19 Grant

Connecticut State College & Universities

CHEFA awarded $350,000 to the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU System, comprised of 17 colleges and universities) as part of our FY 2021 CHEFA COVID-19 Grant Program. The grant will support a relief fund for students who were ineligible for CARES Act funds due to USDOE restrictions. 

The CHEFA funds will support approximately 2,675 students, some of whom are DACA students, with financial support to help with essential academic and basic human needs necessities, including; food, housing, materials, technology, healthcare, and childcare.  Amounts of either $200, or $100 will be distributed depending on enrollment in a two or four- year college or university.

CHEFA is pleased to provide this  much needed support for CSCU students.
