AYA Tells Congress to Fund Higher Ed. Programs
May 10, 2018
On May 9th, AYA lobbyist Ally Bernstein drafted and sent letters to both the House and Senate on behalf of AYA and our members, urging them to fund programs that address higher education affordability and accessibility. Specifically, we encourage members to fund Pell grant expansion, as well as programs that help first generation students, low-income families, and non traditional students afford college. We also encourage the continued and increased funding of dual-enrollment programs. AYA also encouraged Congress to appropriate funds to Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program, including to protect individuals unwittingly enrolled in non-qualified loan programs.
