Republican-Eagle/RiverTowns Communications: Forgotten in the CARES Act and facing loss of income, college students are in uncertain times

By Rachel Fergus, April 7 2020

The CARES ACT, which was signed by President Donald Trump on March 28, will provide stimulus checks to many U.S. residents. Individual adults with an income up to $75,000 will be eligible for a $1,200 payment while married couples who make up to $150,000 annually will receive $2,400. Parents in these income brackets will also receive $500 per child. 

College-aged individuals were forgotten in this act.

At Dakota County Technical College, Minnesota State College Southeast, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and the University of Wisconsin-Stout the majority of work study jobs are postponed. ... MSC Southeast will continue to pay work study students for scheduled hours if they are unable to work because of the COVID-19 situation.
