For colleges, universities and their students struggling financially during the coronavirus pandemic, more federal help is on the way.

The U.S. Department of Education is making $21.2 billion available to higher education institutions as part of the second federal stimulus bill approved recently. The money comes as state universities and colleges in Florida have been asked to prepare for an 8.5 percent cut in allocations from the Legislature this year.

While questions remain about when the money will be available and what strings will be attached, much of it will go to students in the form of grants to pay for costs like tuition, food, housing, health care and child care.
