The Universal Child Care Act and Emergency Grants For Students

The Universal Child Care Act is a federal initiative to help low-income parents and students afford and find quality child care. The Act includes many features such as a child care advisory board, a child care grant pilot program, a child care subsidy information portal, and guidance for property owners. In addition, the act has provisions to help families apply for tax abatements to help pay for child care.

Depending on a student’s financial need, he or she may qualify for an emergency grant of up to $700. These funds can be used to cover COVID-19-related expenses like childcare and housing. Students should apply for the emergency grant before the deadline of Sept. 8 to avoid missing the funds.

The funds are provided through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. They are given to eligible students who are experiencing financial hardships as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The University of North Georgia will use this money to help students facing financial hardships. The funds will disburse automatically beginning April 28.
