Saratoga, NY: Today, Elise for Congress released the 47th Result in the campaign’s 100 Days, 100 Results program highlighting 100 of the critical wins that Congresswoman Elise Stefanik has delivered to the North Country.

“I secured over $26 million in emergency funding for NY-21 colleges and universities,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “COVID-19 has brought unprecedented challenges for faculty, staff, administrators and students at our colleges and universities, and I proudly support funding for higher education to ensure that our schools have the resources that they need.”

The CARES Act, which Elise supported, provided direct funding for higher education institutions based on their total student enrollment and their enrollment of low-income students. At least 50 percent of the funding allocated to each college and university must be used to provide emergency financial aid grants to students to help them cover expenses related to COVID-19 campus closures.

Elise for Congress will release a new Result each day through the November 3rd election to highlight the campaign’s laser focus on Real Results for the North Country.
