CARES Act Relief Grants for Students

Over the next year, Central Piedmont will receive more than $10 million from the U.S. Department of Education through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This funding is intended to support students and institutional expenses related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Over $5 million will be disbursed directly to eligible students for qualifying expenses related to the disruption of campus operations, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, healthcare, and child care. Due to federal regulations, Central Piedmont will only be able to provide grants to students who are eligible for federal financial aid (Title IV aid) and who meet additional eligibility requirements.

Central Piedmont is working hard to contact all eligible students by email. If you are eligible, you will receive an email from the Central Piedmont Financial Aid Office with additional instructions for how to apply. The email will be sent to your official Central Piedmont student email account. Be sure to check your college email ( and remind your friends) to ensure you don’t miss this opportunity for financial assistance.

Please visit the Central Piedmont CARES Act website for the most up-to-date information regarding eligibility, disbursement, and general CARES Act related information. 

Not eligible? We are still here to support you! Visit the Central Piedmont Cares page for information regarding other available resources, including other emergency financial assistance. If you need additional help, fill out the Central Piedmont Cares student form.
