Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

Horry-Georgetown Technical College received additional stimulus funds from the federal government as a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to assist students in need during the pandemic.

The initial awards were made to students who were enrolled the Spring Semester as a credit student on March 13, 2020.
