Beat me to it. The part I ddn't know is that 1/2 of the money goes to students.

The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act passed last month included billions in aid for higher education. Ohio institutions received a combined $388 million among its public and private colleges, community colleges, career academies, technical schools, adult education centers and cosmetology schools.

Half of the funds must go to students through emergency grants, while universities may use the other half to cover costs associated with the coronavirus.

For Ohio’s public colleges, the federal aid totaled nearly $200 million, with $100 million going to students for emergency relief. The other nearly $100 million doesn’t cover the full losses that public universities have suffered due to the pandemic, Johnson said.
