“Federal funding under the CARES Act (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act) has been identified to go to colleges in response to the COVID-19 pandemic national emergency. The first installment of this funding is designated to go to students. West Georgia Technical College is in the process of applying for these funds. In the meantime, the College is working on an appropriate plan for release of funds to students. At this time, we are still awaiting further guidance and clarification from the Department of Education on the exact regulations for disbursement, as well as what student populations are eligible to receive the money. We know the significance of this funding for some of our students in need and can assure you we are working diligently to release funds as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.”
