Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II CRRSAA

The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund II (HEERF II) was authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA) to provide funding to proprietary institutions for emergency grants to students to cover any component of the cost of attendance or for emergency costs which arise as a result of the Coronavirus.

MT Training Center received $200,146 in funding to assist students with emergency grants from HEERF II CRRSAA Awards.

The total amount of HEERF funds distributed to students under Section18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act as of June 30, 2021 is $118,628.

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 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act equals 128.

The total number of students who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act as of March 31, 2021 is 43.

The following guidelines have been developed for distribution of HEERF II funding:

Eligibility

Applicants must have a temporary financial hardship resulting from a sudden emergency, accident or unforeseen event.

  • The student’s capability to attend MTTC must be at jeopardy due to the emergency.
  • Applicants must be currently enrolled at MTTC.
  • Other possible financial resources must have been considered and are insufficient or not available in a timely manner.
  • Funds are awarded only to the recipient.
  • Applications must be able to provide requested documentation.

Application Process

Students must fill out the form located below and email it to Melissa Cuellar at mcuellar@mttrainingcenter.edu.

  • The student will receive a notice of their application being approved or denied via email on record or with a phone call.
  • Funds are limited so eligible students will be awarded assistance in the order of application and need.

Covered Expenses

Typical expenses may include but are not limited to:

  • Tuition, lab fees
  • Rent
  • Utilities such as water, electricity bills, internet and phone, etc.
  • Groceries
  • Replacement of essential personal items due to a fire, natural disaster, or theft.
  • Funds for immediate emergency shelter • Safety needs (changing locks on vehicle or home).
  • Prescriptions or other costs related to medical care.

Expenses Not Covered

  • Health insurance
  • Study abroad costs
  • Non-essential utilities, (i.e. cable)
  • Application or test fees
  • Household costs not related to damage or theft
  • Costs for entertainment or recreation
  • Non-emergency travel or other non-essential expenses
  • Expenditures occurred as a result of poor financial management and not an emergency.
  • Medical expenses needed for a family member or friend of the student requesting services

CRRSAA required the institution to give priority to students with “exceptional need”. Priority will be given to students receiving the Federal Pell Grant. The amount awarded will be based on the specific needs of the student.

The HEERF II grant is not considered financial aid and will not affect the students’ current or future financial aid eligibility.
