College of Lake County was awarded more than $4.9 million in funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act passed March 27. Emergency cash grants are now available to CLC students whose lives have been affected by the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19.

As required by the act, at least half the monies go directly to CLC students in the form of emergency cash assistance grants up to $1,500 to pay for housing, food, course materials, technology, health care and child care. The remaining portion will pay for the college's added expenses, such as the increasing demand for cybersecurity, training, cleaning and delivery of instruction.


The college and CLC Foundation established an initial $267,500 fund for immediate availability. For details, visit These funds include a $50,000 gift from the Julian Grace Foundation for emergency needs and $25,000 from the John and Kathleen Schreiber Foundation for undocumented students.
