CARES Reporting


On April 24, 2020 Hamilton College received $594,754 in the first round (tranche) funding from the Federal Government under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund. 

On May 7, the United States Department of Education (DOE) directed institutions to post information about these funds directly onto their primary website within 30 days of receipt of the funds, and every 45 days thereafter.

  • The total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act as of the date of submission (i.e., as of the 30-day Report and every 45 days thereafter). Response: As of May 20, 2020 a total of $584,900 had been distributed. The remaining $9,854 will be used to further support eligible students as individual needs arise. That spending will be detailed in subsequent reports.
  • The estimated total number of students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act. Response: 1,006 eligible students.
  • The total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act. Response: 1,006 students.
  • The method(s) used by the institution to determine which students receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants and how much they would receive under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act. Response: Currently enrolled Title IV eligible financial aid recipients were issued emergency grants on a sliding scale based on their eligibility for need based financial aid. The largest grants were issued to students with the greatest demonstrated financial need.
  • Any instructions, directions, or guidance provided by the institution to students concerning the Emergency Financial Aid Grants. Response: The text of an email sent to all recipients from Hamilton's Associate Vice President for Finance and Controller, Carol Gable, on May 4, 2020 follows.

Greetings,

I hope this email finds you well. Congress recently passed the CARES Act, which includes the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund, to provide funds to colleges and universities for the purpose of assisting students with unexpected expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the coronavirus.

Hamilton College is distributing these funds to Title IV eligible financial aid recipients. These funds are to be used to assist with food, housing, course materials, technology, and healthcare costs. At this point, the IRS indicates the payment is taxable to recipients, but there have been requests for reconsideration so this may change.

If you have previously enrolled in direct deposit for Accounts Payable payments such as a Room and Board refund, this payment will be directly deposited to your account by May 22, at the latest. If you have not yet enrolled in direct deposit, you may do so online by 11 p.m. on May 10 and this payment will be deposited to your account. Otherwise a check will be issued and sent to your home address.

Sincerely,

Carol Gable
