Application Period for CARES Act Funding Extended

September 03, 2020

The Department of Education is reopening and extending the application period for institutions of higher education intending to apply for funding under the CARES Act. This move will give institutions additional time to submit applications and associated data submissions.

The new deadline for transmittal of applications for all institutions eligible for funding is September 30, 2020. Institutions qualified to take advantage of this deadline extension include those that did not initially apply for CARES Act funding and those that are branch campuses eligible to receive funding under the allotment for Historically Black Colleges or Universities, Tribal Colleges or Universities, and Minority-Serving Institutions whose main campus did not initially apply for or receive an award.
