Meal Plan Balances that were unused were refunded to students.

Fall 2020: New certification forms were completed by Title IV eligible, enrolled students. Two $400 block grants were given to this group for August and September.

Spring 2021: Remaining HEERF I were disbursed to all students who reported to the Health and Safety Program Manager of being quarantined or isolated due to COVID-19. After these funds were diminished our NPC Foundation paid students this stipend for the rest of the spring term.
