FRANKFORT, Ky. (WEHT)- The Kentucky Council of Higher Education says it is projecting $156 million in relief funds, with $78 million going to help students.

Officials say the projection comes after federal guidance and the total includes all of Kentucky’s public and private institutions, as well as the Kentucky Community and Technical College System.

The money comes from the $2.2 trillion stimulus package approved in March, which included $14 billion for higher education across the country. The Department of Education says it will release the student relief funds immediately to schools but funds for the schools could take several weeks.

Relief fund allocation, by institution.
