If you're a college student affected by Covid-19, you could be eligible for financial assistance.

Congress passed the CARES Act back in March, and a portion of it is designed to send money to higher education institutions. Some of the eligibility requirements include being a college student during the month of March (2020) and you must have applied for federal student aid before the Covid-19 outbreak.

Officials say students will be contacted if they qualify.

"We sent out a letter to all of our LDCC student last week to let them know that we were working through the process with the Department of Education and that we would be in further contact with them," says Chris Broadwater, Acitng Chancellor for Louisiana Delta Community College.

Broadwater says this week, there will be further contact with students who qualify.
