HCTC Flood Relief

Eastern Kentucky is reeling from the devastation and loss of lives and property resulting from the flash flooding that occurred this week. Through the generosity and support of local, state, and national donors, Hazard Community and Technical College has been able to establish an HCTC Flood Victim Relief Fund. If you are a full- or part-time student with us and have been affected by the flooding and want to apply for assistance, please click on the link below (Apply for Student Assistance). We will award and distribute the funds (up to $500 per student) based on application date and need as quickly as possible. Please know that funds are limited. While we know the damages are great, the hope that the emergency funds will assist with meeting some immediate needs.

We have a number of services on our Hazard Campus today and throughout the week for those affected by the recent disastrous flooding across our Eastern Kentucky region.
