Maryland Congressional Delegation Announces More Than $543.8 Million in American Rescue Plan Funding for Maryland Colleges, Universities and Students

WASHINGTON –  U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen and Congressmen Steny H. Hoyer, Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, Kweisi Mfume, Anthony Brown, Jamie Raskin and David Trone (all D-Md.) today announced more than $543.8 million in American Rescue Plan funding for colleges, universities and students throughout Maryland.

The funding will help local institutions cope with the severe financial fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. At least half of the funding for each institution will be distributed in the form of emergency cash grants to students who are facing hunger, homelessness and other hardships. Students should contact their institutions for more information about how they can apply for an emergency grant.

“The success of our local colleges and universities is critical to the success of our economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic,” the Members said. “The American Rescue Plan makes a historic investment that will ensure the doors to higher education remain open here in Maryland and provide struggling students with the resources they need to stay on track and complete their degrees.”

The American Rescue Plan provides $36 billion total for nearly 3,500 public and private, nonprofit colleges and universities nationwide. In Maryland, 47 colleges and universities will receive funding averaging $11.5 million. Another $3 billion in additional funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and other under-resourced institutions will be distributed at a later date.
