The MCFF provides emergency grants up to $500 for currently enrolled Maricopa Community College students. These emergency grants are designed to prevent students from dropping out of school due to an unforeseen financial emergency. These one-time grants are given on a first-come, first-served basis per semester.
Emergency Grant Process:

Faculty who become aware of a student with an emergency need should contact their MCFF college representative via email with the following information:
1. The student’s name and current MCCCD ID number.

2. A brief explaination of the student’s circumstances. 

3. A request for a specific amount on behalf of the student. 

We rely on you to verify the student is currently enrolled and has a genuine need. DO NOT refer your student to the MCFF contact.

The MCFF Board usually makes an award within 24 hours of receiving a request from a professor.

(if you cannot reach your college contact, email one of the MCFF Board of Directors Officers)
