Tri-C working with PCs for People to Provide Computers for students
 

March 25, 2020: Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) is teaming with PCs for People to provide computers to students so they can continue their studies as Tri-C shifts to online delivery of many classes following the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

To be eligible, a student must live in a household with an income below the 200% poverty level or be enrolled in an income-based government assistance program. Federal Pell Grant recipients would qualify.

Students can apply for a computer through PCs for People, a nonprofit dedicated to getting computers and affordable internet service into the homes of low-income individuals.

Registration can be done by calling 216-777-4441 or emailing ohio@pcsforpeople.com.

The Cuyahoga Community College Foundation is covering the cost of the computers for eligible Tri-C students. The Foundation launched the project to address needs created by the response to COVID-19.

Computers and “internet hotspot” devices from PCs for People will be distributed to approved applicants at two Tri-C sites this week. Details on pickup locations will be provided following registration.

Given that the distribution is for education purposes and will be done outside, it will take place despite recent actions to limit access to campus buildings given the COVID-19 outbreak. Campus police will be at both sites to direct traffic.

Visit pcsforpeople.org to learn more about the organization.
