On April 24, 2020, Northeast Lakeview College’s Authorized Representative and President, Dr. Veronica Garcia, signed the Certification and Agreement for Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, uploading and returning the document to the U.S. Department of Education as part of the institutions’ application submission to the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund-Student Aid grant program via the Grants.gov portal. In signing the aforementioned certification and agreement document, Northeast Lakeview College assures its intent to use no less than 50% of the Federal funding received under Section 18004 (a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.

Amount of Student Emergency Aid Grants Disbursed:

The total amount of emergency financial aid grants disbursed to Northeast Lakeview College students using funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act as of March 31, 2021, is $671,722.

The estimated total number of Northeast Lakeview College students eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 of the Higher Education Act  (HEA) of 1965 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 3,448. This figure was originally reported as 1,593 but was revised on April 21, 2021, after reviewing revised data provided by the Office of Financial Aid. This estimated total was derived using the number of economically disadvantaged/Pell-eligible students enrolled at NLC in fall 2019 as reported by Alamo Colleges Institutional Research and Evaluation and using the student eligibility criteria found in Section 424 of the HEA of 1965 as amended, ensuring the students included in the count were currently in good academic standing.
