Congress on Wednesday released an omnibus fiscal year 2022 appropriations bill that will fund the entire federal government for the remainder of the current fiscal year. A highlight for community colleges and their students is a $400 bump to the Pell Grant maximum award, which will increase to $6,895 in the 2022-23 award year.
