The CARES Act Student Assistance at CFK is for students who have experienced a loss of income in their household due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and are in need of assistance for expenses such as housing, utilities, food, transportation and/or daycare expenses. Eligible students must be degree/certificate seeking or in the EMT, Law Enforcement or Project ACCESS (FA Eligible) Programs, meet standards of satisfactory academic progress, and have submitted the 2019-20 or 2020-21 FAFSA (If you have not completed the FAFSA, Click Here). Applicants are also expected to confirm registration in courses at The College of the Florida Keys in the Spring 2020, Summer 2020 and/or Fall 2020 terms. The funds were made available through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was passed by Congress and signed into law on March 27, 2020. This economic relief package was passed to protect the American people from the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19.
**The College reserves the right to withdraw or modify the student’s assistance based on the student’s fulfillment of required CARES Act Student Assistance criteria.
