About the Normandale Cares Emergency Grant

Normandale Community College now has additional resources to help low-income students weather financial emergencies through the Normandale Cares Emergency Grant. Students can apply for grants of up to $500 to help cover expenses just beyond their means, which allows them to quickly return focus to their academic pursuits.

Approved grant funds will be distributed within 3-5 business days. Students also will be referred to additional campus, community, and financial literacy resources to supplement the grants, address root causes or contributing factors to the financial emergencies, and further support students' persistence.
