Here’s How Much Each CA College Will Get in COVID Relief

California’s institutions of higher education are getting $2.83 billion out of the COVID-19 relief bill approved in December. A searchable database compiled by EdSource shows exactly how much each college or university can expect.

The database shows the largest amount of funds going to the following 10 universities:

  • California State University, Northridge - $74,004,088
  • California State University, Fullerton - $67,736,949
  • California State University, Long Beach - $67,421,424
  • California State University, Los Angeles - $61,905,561
  • California State University, Sacramento - $59,891,260
  • University of California, Irvine - $54,737,221
  • California State University, Fresno - $52,725,317
  • University of California, Los Angeles - $52,623,807
  • University of California, San Diego - $52,015,747
  • University of California, Davis - $51,521,569

“Public and non-profit colleges can use the money for financial aid grants to students, and to cover any institutional costs such as lost revenue, reimbursement for Covid-related expenses, or technology costs due to transitioning to distance education,” EdSource reports. “The new funding requires colleges to spend at least as much of the money on student grants as they did last summer when they received relief funds from the CARES Act (The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.) The CARES Act funding required colleges to spend at least 50% of their allocation on student grants.”
