The Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund was first authorized by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSAA), signed into law on December 27, 2020. HEERF financial aid grants to students can be used for any component
of a student’s cost of attendance or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus, such as tuition, food, housing, health care (including mental health care) or child care.
Financial Aid grant amounts to qualifying students will vary. Award amounts are determined by a formula that takes into account each student’s financial need as demonstrated by their Expected Family Contribution (EFC),
as well as his or her proximity to campus at time of enrollment. Students farther from campus may receive additional aid to offset expenses related to travel.
The award matrix used first looks at a student’s official EFC to determine whether a student is eligible for a HEERF grant and in what amount. If a student is eligible for the HEERF grant and has a proximity to campus of 50 miles
or greater at time of enrollment, they may receive an additional grant.
*Award amounts are estimates and may change based on availability of funds.
There is no application process that students must complete. UTI will automatically issue grants to qualifying students in the form of a check. UTI will provide details to grant recipients regarding how and when to obtain the check using their uti.edu
To qualify for a HEERF financial aid grant from UTI, a student must:

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a $2 trillion relief and stimulus package designed to address the economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. One part of the CARES Act created the Higher Education Emergency Relief
Fund (HEERF), which provided emergency financial aid grants to qualifying students for expenses caused by the disruption on their campus due to coronavirus.
The grant amounts issued to qualifying students varied. Award amounts were determined by a formula that took into account each student’s financial need as demonstrated by their Expected Family Contribution (EFC) as well as his or her proximity to campus. Students farther from campus may have received additional aid to offset expenses related to travel.
UTI sent students information regarding the grant process using their uti.edu email addresses. The email included a link to a certification form that needed to be reviewed and completed. The link was personalized to each student and could only be completed
Following receipt of the certification form, UTI issued grants to qualifying students in the form of a check. UTI provided details to grant recipients regarding how and when to obtain the check using their uti.edu email addresses. Students were advised
that the submission of a certification form did not guarantee that a student would receive an emergency financial aid grant.
Per the U.S. Department of Education, in order to receive an emergency student grant under the CARES Act, a student must have:
