Emergency Grant Program - Random Acts of Kindness

Through a generous donation, NHCC has an emergency grant program called Random Acts of Kindness (RAK). The grant offers a one time, up to $500, to students who are experiencing financial hardship and who have an unforeseen financial barrier, such as a car repair, medical costs, child care, transportation, food, bills or other needs that they cannot meet. If you feel uncertain about if you qualify or would like to discuss the application process, please contact or call 763-424-0815.
