Due to the impact of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak, Kansas City Kansas Community College (KCKCC) is working to meet the needs of our students. KCKCC has established a process for students seeking temporary, short-term, financial assistance. Emergency financial assistance funds have been received as part of the Federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), called the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III).
