CARES ACT Reporting

Congress recently passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act which will
deliver emergency assistance to East Mississippi Community College in the form of funds to be further
distributed to its students and used to cover expenses related to the disruption of campus operations
due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of attendance, such as food,
housing, course materials, technology, health care, and child care). The CARES Act provides institutions
with significant discretion on how to award this emergency assistance to students. Each institution may
develop its own system and process for determining how to allocate these funds.
