CORONA VIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY “CARES ACT”

June 22, 2020

Pursuant to reporting procedures of Section 18004(e) of the CARES Act MT Training Center is acknowledging that the institution signed and returned to the Department the Certification and Agreement and MT Training Center has used no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students.

MT Training Center will receive or has received $123,341.16 from the Department pursuant to the institution’s Certification and Agreement [for] Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Student.

The total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act as of the date at the top of this notice is $123,341.16

The estimated total number of students at the institution eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 was 112 and were thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.

The total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 88.

The method(s) used by MT Training Center asked eligible students to apply for funds using an application available on the school’s website at mttrainingcenter.org. Based on the application the school was able to determine which students receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants. The school established a policy and procedure process to determine a range of how much each eligible student could receive under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act.

All eligible currently enrolled students as of April 10, 2020 were notified via text messaging system of the posting of the application on the school’s website. The students were instructed to download the website, fill it out and send the completed application to the Chief Executive Officer via email. The students were also advised that once the application was reviewed they would be contacted with a decision.

COVID 19 Update

MT Training Center continues to evaluate the guidelines issued by the CDC and the President of the United States. Our greatest concern is the health and safety of our students and staff. We are taking necessary precautions to help us all remain safe. As of March 23, 2020, the school is operating on a limited basis. Instruction is being delivered via online software for the short term. Students that have progressed to the hands-on portion of training will be contacted to facilitate that training soon. We will do everything possible to remain compliant with county, state and federal guidelines while providing the best education possible to our students.
