Community colleges, four-year institutions get $354 million from Biden's $36 billion in recovery plan.

Oregon universities and colleges will share $354 million of the $36 billion that President Joe Biden's pandemic recovery plan provides for higher education across the United States.

U.S. Rep. Suzanne Bonamici has released a detailed list of how much each public and private institution will get starting May 11. The plan specifies that half the amount is reserved for emergency grants to students.

"I advocated for significant federal relief to help students meet basic needs and stay on track with their education, and to help these institutions keep their doors open," she said in a statement. "This funding will allow schools to serve students who have been most affected by the pandemic, and help our communities build back better. "

Bonamici is a Democrat from Beaverton who represents the 1st District of northwest Oregon. She also sits on the higher education subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee. One of the subcommittee's tasks is to renew federal spending authority for higher education, particularly student aid programs.
