Coalition Applauds California State Legislature and Governor Newsom for Historic Investments in Cal Grants in 2021-22 California Budget Agreement

A coalition of 30 diverse organizations representing higher education advocacy, civil rights and social justice, business and workforce, and student leadership, express their appreciation to state leaders for historic investments in college affordability – and entitlement Cal Grants for community college students in particular – in the 2021-22 California budget agreement. The prioritization of this policy milestone advocates have long championed will play a key role in closing the state’s equity gaps in higher education attainment.
