BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Maryland’s private and public colleges and universities will get $170 million in federal funding to help in their responses to the coronavirus, the state’s congressional delegation said Monday.

Around half of the money each school gets will go toward providing direct assistance to students facing emergency expenses due to the pandemic, while the rest will be useable under the discretion of the Department of Education.

The University of Maryland College Park will get the largest chunk of the money with nearly $21.5 million going to the University System of Maryland’s flagship campus.

CORONAVIRUS RESOURCES: 

Towson University will receive $17.3 million, while the University of Maryland Baltimore County and Morgan State University will each get around $9.3 million.

The money is part of the massive $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package known as the CARES Act that also includes nearly $350 billion for small businesses.
