Keypoint:  To receive an ARP student grant, students must be enrolled in the Fall 2021 semester and be participating in their courses.  Students do not need to take any action to receive an ARP student grant other than to remain enrolled at UAHT

The American Recovery Plan (ARP) Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III) provides emergency funding to universities and colleges to assist students in need during the coronavirus pandemic. In 2020, this funding was known as the CARES Act Funding, and in the Spring 2021 semester the funding was called CRRSAA.

UAHT will be disbursing ARP HEERF III Emergency Relief Fund grants to eligible students to help cover any expenses related to the cost of attendance (i.e., food, housing and utilities, health insurance including mental health care, transportation, or childcare) or for emergency costs that arise due to coronavirus.

Funds from the ARP HEERF III Emergency Relief Fund are not considered financial aid and do not affect a student’s current or future financial aid eligibility. Per the U.S. Department of Education, institutions are required to prioritize grants to students with exceptional financial need, such as those who receive Pell Grants.  The grants will be processed and mailed via check to the address on file in the student information system.  Students can check and update their mailing address in myUAHT.

To receive an ARP student grant, students must be enrolled in the Fall 2021 semester and be participating in their courses.  Students do not need to take any action to receive an ARP student grant other than to remain enrolled at UAHT (we would also like you to pass your courses)

UAHT will distribute the funding to all eligible students to assist with educational costs and other financial challenges related to COVID-19.  Award amounts will be based on financial need and enrollment status (full-time or part-time).  We plan to process the grant awards and mail them by October 20.

ARP student grant awards for the fall semester will be provided as follows:

  • $1,100 for full-time Pell eligible students
  • $900 for full-time non-Pell eligible students
  • $750 for part-time Pell eligible students
  • $550 for part-time non-Pell eligible students
  • $200 for concurrent/dual-enrollment students

Checks will be issued to students for the full amount for which they qualify – no tuition or fees will be deducted from ARP student grants.  If students wish to have their ARP student grant applied to their student account for any unpaid balance for the Fall 2021 semester, they must endorse their check to the College.  Please write on the back of the check “Payable to UAHT” and then sign your name.  Bring the check to the business office on the Hope campus, the front desk in TKA on the Texarkana campus, or mail it to P.O. Box 140, Hope, AR 71802-0140.

As soon as the Financial Aid and Business offices finish financial aid refunds, we will start on ARP student grant awards.   Financial aid refunds will be mailed September 24, and we anticipate being able to mail ARP student grant awards by October 20.
