Concord University Distributes Second Round of COVID Relief Funds to Students
 
ATHENS, W.Va. –Concord University students receive federal funding through the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).

More than $1 million has been distributed to approximately 1,500 students.  This includes both undergraduate and graduate-level students, both full and part-time.

Vice President for Business and Finance, Dr. Chuck Becker, says the money was deposited Thursday afternoon on student CU Mountainlion bank cards.  Students will receive a notice from BankMobile when the money has posted to their accounts. 

The funding is part of the federal government's $82 billion authorized through CRRSAA in support of education. This is in addition to the more than $30 billion provided last spring through the Coronavirus Aid, Recover, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.  Concord University distributed more than $1 million at that time to approximately 1,000 students.
