Community College Student Access Act Introduced in Congress

Community College Daily reports that Rep. Grace Meng (D-NY) introduced the Community College Student Access Act in Congress last week. The Act would attempt to provide a program similar to the City University of New York (CUNY)'s Accelerated Study in Associate Programs (ASAP) on a larger scale. The ASAP program at CUNY provides academic, career, and financial assistance to students in the system's community colleges.

Community College Daily reports that the proposed legislation would budget $10 billion for a period of 10 years for this program. From Community College Daily: "Selected colleges would receive a five-year grant and most would have to increasingly contribute to the cost of carrying out the program from nonfederal sources, from 20 percent in the second year, to 80 percent in the fifth year."
