Joint Statement on Omnibus Legislation Increasing Investment in Postsecondary Student Success Grants

In December 2022, Congress passed the final bipartisan omnibus bill that included an agreement to increase the Postsecondary Success Grants (PSSG) program funding from $5 million to $45 million for the Fiscal Year 2023. The Institute for College Access & Success (TICAS), along with its partners has advocated for stronger federal investments in evidence-based strategies that equitably get more students through college.

TICAS, partners, and allies applaud this increased investment but look forward to doubling down efforts to secure additional funding that drive dramatic gains in college completion.
