Encourage Your Representative to Support H.R. 4674
The House Committee on Education and Labor recently passed H.R. 4674, the College Affordability Act. If passed, this bill would reauthorize the Higher Education Act (HEA) and would, among other things:
• Increase the maximum Pell Grant, index the award amount to inflation so that grant dollars would maintain their purchasing power, and expand Pell Grant eligibility to DREAMers and incarcerated individuals;
• Reduce and simplify the federal loan programs and repayment options available to students;
• Simplify the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and improve the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program; and
• Restore critical regulations designed to protect students and taxpayers from unscrupulous colleges, such as rules covering gainful employment and borrowers’ defense to repayment.
Encourage your Representative to support H.R. 4674.
