Coalition Letter Urging House Appropriations Committee to Protect Pell Grant Funding

July 18, 2017

Over forty organizations representing students, consumers, colleges, workers and more urged House appropriators to oppose the $3.3 billion rescission from Pell Grants included in the FY 2018 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education appropriations bill, and instead work toward a funding agreement that protects Pell, provides sequester relief with parity between defense and non-defense spending, and provides adequate resources to support all of the important programs in this critical appropriations bill.
