Emergency Funding During COVID-19

Apply for Emergency Funding from GRC's Benefits Hub

Textbooks and other course materials are expensive, and COVID-19 has affected many of us financially.

If you need assistance, please apply for this emergency funding grant. The grant awards funding for:

  • Food
  • Housing
  • Course Materials (textbooks, supplies, access codes...)
  • Technology (computers, headphones, webcams...)
  • Medical Expenses
  • Child Care
  • Utilities (electricity, internet, water/sewer, gas...)
  • Transportation (car payment, gas, bus fare...)
  • And more

Go to the links below for the grant application and more information about the Benefits Hub!


Please Note:

  • The Library and the Bookstore are two separate entities!  The library does not sell or rent books. 

  • The Library does not buy current textbooks.  To buy all required textbooks would exceed our entire library budget! 

  • You can find some textbooks in the library.  Check Course Reserves and the Library Catalog tabs above. 

  • Textbooks currently required for courses cannot be interlibrary loaned​.
