Virginia’s private institutions of higher education to receive CARES Act funding

10 November 2020 Covid19 News


Gov. Ralph Northam yesterday announced a new allocation of $22 million in federal Coronavirus Aid, Recovery, and Economic Security (CARES) Act dollars to support Virginia’s private institutions of higher education.

This funding is proportionate to recently announced CARES Act funding for public institutions, and will be used to support COVID-19 preparedness and response efforts at Virginia’s private nonprofit colleges and universities.

This funding will be allocated to the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) and distributed to institutions based on COVID-19 expenses incurred between July 1 and Nov. 1, 2020. The funds will support pandemic-related expenditures including personal protective equipment, sanitization and cleaning, and testing for students, staff, and faculty.
