Dear Auburn Career Center Adult Workforce Student,
 
I am pleased to tell you that Auburn Career Center Adult Workforce Education was
awarded funds from the United Stated Department of Education and the Secretary of
Education, Betsy DeVos, for the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act
to help you during this unprecedented time. This money is being distributed equally to all
eligible (all Title IV) students to help “cover expenses related to the disruption of campus
operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of
attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child
care)”.
 
We hope that this will provide some relief to each of you and help you with your
daily living expenses. We can only imagine the impact this virus and the disruption of your
education has had on your lives. As an educational institution, we are working to train you
for a career. As a career center we are keenly aware of the importance of hands-on training,
lab experience, certifications, internships, clinicals, and getting into the workplace as soon
as possible. We understand that you signed up for a program at Auburn because you want
an in-demand career with a local employer so that you can help yourself and your family.
Although we could never have predicted that this virus was coming, and the extent
to which your education would be disrupted, we are grateful that the secretary of education
understands that you may have changed your day to day jobs, family lives, and
transportation issues to come to class and now that education is postponed.
 
We sincerely hope this will help you, and we look forward to getting back into the
classroom and labs to help you achieve your goals.
Sincerely,
Michelle Rodewald
Director of Adult Workforce Education and Business Partnerships
 
 
 
Auburn Career Center Adult Workforce Education was awarded funds from the United
States Department of Education and the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos, for the
Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to help students during this
unprecedented time.
 
Auburn Career Center Adult Workforce Education is set to be allocated $124,034 from
the CARES ACT.
 
50% of the funds or $62,017 has been received and was given directly to all eligible
students to cover daily living expenses as the CARES Act stipulates. This money was distributed
equally to all eligible (all Title IV) students to help “cover expenses related to the disruption of
campus operations due to coronavirus (including eligible expenses under a student’s cost of
attendance, such as food, housing, course materials, technology, health care and child care)”.
85 students were eligible and 85 students received an equal portion of these funds.
 
The remaining $62,017, known as the Institutional Portion of the Higher Education
Emergency Relief Fund under section 18004 (a)(1) and 18004 (c) of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief,
and Economic Security (CARES) Act, once received, will be utilized as outlined in the CARES Act:
continued student relief as well as “costs associated with significant changes of delivery of
instruction due to the coronavirus”.
 
Auburn Career Center has signed and returned to the Department the Certification and
Agreement and the assurance that the institution has used, or intends to use, no less than 50
percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide
Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.
 
Students who will receive grant money with the first $62,017 received a text message,
an email and a letter in the mail explaining the funds. Additional students who receive monies
from the Institutional portion of the grant will be alerted in the same manner.
 
Questions related to the use of these funds can be directed to the Director of Adult
Workforce Education, Michelle Rodewald, or the Treasurer, Sherry Williamson.
