HCC Cares about our students. We have designated funds available for students facing a financial need. With our Lavender Fund, students can apply for funds to help cover emergency needs (related or not related to COVID-19).
Through the generosity of individuals and organizations, the HCC Foundation helps students that may be facing barriers to accomplishing their educational goals.
Typical funding needs that students request include:
- Transportation needs (public transportation, gas, etc.)
- Child Care
- Heating and utility assistance
- Food and Hunger assistance
