More than $450,000 in funding to go to two postsecondary schools to aid in safe reopening amid COVID-19 pandemic


Assistance in the amount of $458,136 will be going to two postsecondary schools in state Sen. Steve Santarsiero (D-10)’s district, Bucks County Community College and Delaware Valley University, to aid them in implementing public health and safety plans and help them to resume operations in the fall.

Bucks County Community College will receive $366,908 and Delaware Valley University will receive $91,228. The funding is part of $28 million being distributed amongst postsecondary institutions in Pennsylvania. The amount each entity received was based on both the shares of total enrollments by each postsecondary sector and the number of socio-economically disadvantaged students served by institutions.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act authorized Gov. Wolf to determine the educational use of Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Funds.
