Student success is our top priority at CPTC, and we recognize the impact the pandemic has had on our students. CARES Act funding supports students affected by the campus disruptions caused by the coronavirus. It provides financial assistance for things such as:

  • Rental assistance
  • Utility assistance
  • Required books
  • Tool kits
  • Technology needs (Ex: Computer/laptop, required software, WIFI hotspot services)
  • Transportation
  • Childcare costs
  • Food
  • Medical
  • Tuition

For Fall Quarter, all enrolled and eligible students can apply for Cares Act funding.

Once your completed application has been received, a CPTC staff member will review it for eligibility and funding availability. You can expect to receive a response within 2 business days. If you are not eligible for CARES Act funding, staff will work with you to identify other resources that may be available to you.
