Letter in Support of AB 970

Letter in support of AB 970 (Fong), which would provide first-year tuition and fee benefits to Cal Grant B recipients.

The structure of Cal Grant B was designed under the assumption that low-income students would attend community colleges, where tuition and fee costs are not a barrier. Today, it has the unintended consequence of steering qualified students away from attending four-year colleges. AB 970 would address this inequity, sending a clearer message of affordability to California’s low-income students.
