House of Representatives Passes Bill that Increases Student Financial Aid

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed its first spending bill since Democrats gained control of the chamber, and the bill contains funding increases for student financial aid. From Inside Higher Education: "The $982.8 billion 'minibus' spending bill would increase the maximum Pell Grant by $150 to $6,345 and would allocate $1 billion for the federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant. The legislation would also add another $304 million in new funding for Federal Work-Study for a total of $1.4 billion in FY 2020."
