CARES Act funding

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump on March 27th, 2020. The CARES Act includes two components:

  1. Emergency grant funding to assist qualifying students with expenses related to disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 and;
  2. Funding for institutional support to partially address costs associated with significant changes to the delivery of instruction.

The University of Nevada, Reno provided the U.S. Department of Education with a Certification and Agreement on May 15, 2020 and was awarded a total of $7,122,267 Million in CARES Act Institutional funds (CFDA 84.425). This funding, which is fully budgeted in this fiscal year ending June 2020, allows the University to expand remote course delivery programs, build information technology capacity and train faculty and staff to operate effectively in a remote learning environment. Funds are also being used to help offset the disruption of operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The availability of this funding played an important role in the budget of the University and its related components including the UNR Medical School, State Health Lab and Cooperative Extension Station, among others, as state general fund allocations were cut and unable to fund these necessary expenses.

This program is being administered by the University Vice President for Administration and Finance. Please direct any questions to:
