Driving HEA Modernization & Reauthorization
Business Roundtable members are calling on Congress to take the following actions as part of HEA reauthorization:
- Expand eligibility for federal financial aid to students pursuing certificate and/or industry-recognized certification programs;
- Allow students who take a minimum of 150 clock hours to qualify for federal Pell Grants; and
- Change the federal work-study program to allow funds to be used for off-campus work experiences.
