Emergency Assistance

The 2021-2022 Emergency Assistance Application is now available!

If you are facing a one-time or short term financial emergency, we may be able to help. Berkeley City College is offering limited funds to assist students who are struggling with an urgent expense that might interfere with attending school or finishing your program.

The grant is designed to assist students in dealing with unforeseen financial emergencies that, if not quickly resolved, could cause students to drop out of school.

If approved, you will be contacted via the email you provided to pick up your gift card at the Berkeley City College campus.

Application will close when all funds are expended.

Grocery Bag Distribution: Students may also pick up free grocery between 12 – 3pm at the Berkeley Food Network on 1001 University Ave. Berkeley, CA 94710 every Monday.
