The Coronavirus Community Fund

We are aware that many of our students have been affected by COVID-19. Generous donors have pledged to help students with a variety of needs created due to this public health crisis. Many of our students have been forced to leave behind jobs on campus and in the greater Queens community.

The Coronavirus Community Fund was created to provide hope and support during this difficult time. This fund is a small, short-term emergency financial grant available to currently enrolled students who are unable to meet essential expenses due to a temporary or unexpected hardship. Decisions regarding disbursement of funds are made on a case-by-case basis by a committee.

This fund is intended to be a supplemental financial resource when students are unable to meet immediate and essential expenses because of a temporary hardship surrounding situations for you and your family such as temporary loss of a job or income, accidents, illness, death of a family member, or need for temporary housing.

Please note, the grant does not have to be repaid to the College or the College’s Foundation, nor the QCC Fund, Inc.
