CCBC Receives Tech and Financial Grant from MACo Corporate Partner Comcast

Comcast, a MACo Gold Corporate Partner, recently awarded the Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) a $30,000 grant and 100 new laptops to aid students in need.

According to Center Maryland, “The grant will help students who lack resources through the college’s Student Emergency Aid Fund while the laptops will go to students enrolled in CCBC certificate and adult literacy education programs.”

CCBC describes its Emergency Aid Fund as the following:

The Financial Aid Offices on each campus are given funds each academic year to use at their discretion for students with special financial needs. Donations to these emergency assistance and book funds allow the Financial Aid Office to respond to students’ needs.

Comcast will award the grant and laptops later today, November 11, at the CCBC Essex campus.

At this year’s MACo Winter Conference, panelists during the “Building Out Broadband, Building Up Maryland” presentation will be discussing innovative ways local government and community leaders can help expand broadband in their community.
