NOW AVAILABLE: FEDERAL CARES ACT EMERGENCY GRANT APPLICATION FOR $750 GRANTS
Las Positas has received over $1.4 million in federal funds which is being used to provide direct assistance to eligible students to help with the financial impact of the Covid-19 virus. $750 Grants have been provided automatically to eligible students with unmet financial need who completed 6 units. Now students who did not qualify through the automatic process may apply for remaining funds. Students who have already been awarded an LPC CARES Emergency grant will not be able to apply for additional funds.

Students may continue to file a 2019-2020 FAFSA until June 30, 2020. Late FAFSA filers will still be considered for the CARES Emergency Grants as long as funds remain, and may be eligible for retroactive financial aid for the 2019-2020 school year.
