CMN Students Eligible to Apply For New Emergency Relief Funds

 

If you are a College of Menominee Nation student in need of emergency funds to help continue your studies, you are encouraged to make use of the CARES Act Emergency Relief Fund to by submitting an online application to receive assistance. Questions can be directed to CMN’s Financial Aid Manager, Austin Retzlaff, aretzlaff@menominee.edu or 715-799-6226, ext. 3237, and by reviewing the CARES Act guidelines.

 

Earlier this spring CMN signed and submitted a certification and agreement to the U.S. Department of Education requesting CARES Act assistance with an understanding that at least 50% of the total would provide emergency financial aid grants to students.

 

With half of the $87,485 total allocated to the College designated for direct student aid, the amount possible is $520 if you are an eligible Full-Time student (12 or more credits); $425 Quarter-Time student (9 to 11 credits); $375 Half-Time student (6 to 8 credits), and $200 Part-Time student ( 5 or fewer credits).

 

The funding is intended to cover unforeseen expenses related to disruption of campus operations resulting from the coronavirus pandemic, including but not limited to food, housing, health care, and course-related materials. These grants are not taxable and not counted when estimated financial aid for FAFSA packaging.

 

The funding comes as part of the $14 billion earmarked for colleges and universities in the federal Education Stabilization Fund and intended to help maintain access to education for students. For more information on government aid, assistance which is being provided by CMN directly, and special accommodations being made as the pandemic continues, watch your student e-mail and call or e-mail a Student Achievement Specialist.
