Federal Emergency Grants for Students. Ocean County College has received authorization and funding through the CARES Act to disburse federal emergency grants to students. The link below will take you to an application form that is designed to help us understand your circumstances and needs. The federal government has clarified that funds are intended for the “exclusive purpose of providing emergency financial aid grants to students for their expenses related to the disruption of campus operations: food, housing, course materials/technology, healthcare, and childcare.”
The federal government requires that students complete a FAFSA to be eligible. If you have not yet completed a 2019-2020 FAFSA you still have plenty of time and the staff of the Financial Aid Office are ready to help you. Our overarching goal is to enable students to continue their education at OCC despite the coronavirus impact. Please follow the instructions on the application and submit it on-line to be considered for an emergency grant.
