Staff Emergency Fund

Staff Senate is excited to announce that the Staff Emergency Fund committee is now accepting applications.
These funds will provide limited financial assistance to staff members of Texas Tech University who are experiencing a temporary hardship due to a significant life event. A temporary financial hardship is defined as one caused by a time-limited, specific event, including, but not limited to death of a family member (as defined by OP 70.01, Miscellaneous Leaves of Absence), natural disaster, serious illness, or critical injury. Documentation supporting the temporary financial hardship and the specific event may be required for the application.
To be eligible for assistance, the staff member must meet all of the following criteria:

• Full-time or part-time, benefits-eligible, non-faculty Texas Tech University staff member for at least 12 consecutive months prior to the application date.
• Must have a current performance evaluation on file and have received an overall rating of "strong performer" or above.
• Have not received a disciplinary action within the previous 12 months.
• Have considered other possible resources.
• Have not received an SEF award within the past 24 consecutive months.
• Not currently serving as a member of the Staff Senate SEF Committee, Staff Senate President, or Staff Senate Treasurer.
• Not a spouse or an immediate family member of an employee who is serving as a member of the Staff Senate SEF Committee, Staff Senate President, or Staff Senate Treasurer.
