University of Central Florida, through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), is beginning the second distribution of funds to support students negatively impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Funding is available to students who did not apply during the first application window and for students who would like to request support for additional expenses.
Technology is one of the items for which CARES Act funds can be used. Two specific examples are new technology for online classes and the purchase of laptop/desktop as a result to classes moving online.
The form to apply for funds is available at https://tinyurl.com/UCF-CARES-ACT-Summer
Application window will be open until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, July 5. Assistance is subject to availability of funds, and applicants must meet eligibility criteria.
UCF has a CARES Act FAQ at https://www.ucf.edu/coronavirus/question/how-can-students-apply-for-cares-act-funds/.
For additional resources, the UCF CARES office provides assistance in connecting students with mental health services, support groups, sexual and domestic violence support, and concerns about wellbeing such as financial and housing crises.
