NASFAA Lauds Restoration of Year-Round Pell Grant

Lawmakers took steps today to ensure that the Federal Pell Grant—a cornerstone of the federal student aid programs that gets awarded only to students with the highest proven financial need—will go even further to help low-income students get to and through college.

The $1 trillion omnibus spending bill, passed Wednesday evening by the House and today by the Senate, funds the government through the rest of fiscal year (FY) 2017 and restores year-round Pell Grants beginning in the 2017-18 award year.
