The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed on March 27, 2020 and dedicated funding to Northeastern Junior College to support students with various expenses. The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) signed into law on December 27, 2020 is an extension of the CARES Act and provides additional higher education emergency relief funding and grants for a broader population of students.

$1,000 for students in 12 or more credits
