Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA)
PPCC plans to award $1,000 emergency grants automatically (no application necessary) to students with Pell Grants this Spring semester, as well as provide emergency grants to financial aid applicants who do not qualify for Pell but still have “need”.
CRRSAA allows colleges to provide emergency grants to students to help cover any element of students’ cost of attendance (such as housing, food, childcare, etc.).
With students’ permission the CRRSAA funds can also be applied to their existing school balance (i.e. tuition, fees, etc.).
CRRSA directs colleges to prioritize the awarding of grants to students with exceptional need, such as students with Pell Grants.
Starting at PPCC saves you $10,000, or eight tropical vacations.
Accessing Remote Services
In response to the need to limit the number of people on campus, college services are being provided remotely so students and prospective students can receive assistance from home.
*We are still planning and preparing, so please check back on this page for updates on additional services.**
Students may still make an appointment with a PPCC Financial Aid Advisor via Navigate. We will be offering both online and phone appointments.
