 Broad Group of Organizations Support Student Aid in Letter to Congress 

576 organizations, including many community colleges, today sent a letter urging Congress to strengthen Pell Grants and protect other student aid programs when making funding decisions this year. AACC helped to draft and disseminate the letter for sign-ons. The letter’s signees include a wide swath of colleges and universities, education associations, student and public interest groups, K-12 school districts, and others, intending to show the breadth of support for student aid programs beyond the immediate stakeholders. Congress is finalizing funding legislation for the remainder of FY 17 and is in the beginning stages of the FY 18 appropriations process. AACC’s top priority remains the reinstatement of year-round Pell Grants.
