COVID-19 Response Joint Governing Board (C-19R)

COVID-19 Response Joint Governing Board (C-19R)


On March 18th and 19th, through a special legislative session in both the Undergraduate and Graduate bodies, SGA passed a resolution to allocate $50,000 to fund COVID-19 response efforts. These funds will be allocated by a Joint Governing Board with representation from both undergraduate and graduate students.

This board will take requests on ideas on how SGA can best support students during this time. More information regarding the charter of the board can be found here. For more information, please reach out to SGA’s Joint Vice President of Finance, Josh Eastwood, at

NOTE: The board’s charter expired on June 30, 2020.

What will funding be used for?

Funding proposals are intended to address concerns that students face as a result of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation at Georgia Tech under the following criteria:

  • Impact on the student body, in regard to the number of students impacted by the initiative
  • Severity of the need and/or situation being addressed, in regard to the direct needs of the student body
  • Timeliness of the need and/or situation being addressed
  • Limitations or lack of alternatives for the need and/or situation being addressed
  • Feasibility of deploying the initiative
