UBalt CARES & HEERF Grants
The CARES/HEERF application and program is now officially closed at The University of Baltimore (UBalt). These federal funds were provided directly to UBalt students as a result of the National Emergency declared due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The environment surrounding the pandemic created challenges for many UBalt students which the CARES/HEERF program was able to address.
On behalf of The University of Baltimore and The University System of Maryland, the Office of Financial Aid was honored to be able to provide over $6.5 million dollars in direct support to 2,475 students* from the CARES/HEERF program. These awards were used by students to address their need for housing, food, childcare expenses, course materials, health care, and technology expenses.
While the CARES/HEERF Grant program is now closed, the Office of Financial Aid remains committed to helping students find opportunities to achieve their educational goals.
* CARES/HEERF recipients were able to receive more than one grant over more than one term of enrollment.
The UBalt CARES & HEERF grants were provided by the U.S. Department of Education to support students who had been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding was available through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA).
