 AACC Congressional Statement on TANF Program and Higher Education 

4/22/2010

The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) is pleased to submit this statement addressing the critical need to better integrate education and training into the TANF program. AACC represents the nation’s nearly 1,200 community colleges, as well as 29 affiliated councils, including the American Student Association for Community Colleges. Community colleges enroll 44% of all undergraduates in the U.S., including 52% of Hispanic students and 43% of African American students. In addition, community colleges enroll the highest percentages of low-income students of any sector of higher education. They remain the “Ellis Island” of higher education.
