Title:Strengthening financial aid policies for low-income working adults
Organization:The Working Poor Families Project
Short Description:A few states – including several with Working Poor Families Project partners – are in the forefront of addressing college access for working adults. This policy brief describes these efforts and offers recommendations for states to strengthen financial aid programs that facilitate the enrollment of working adults and their success in college.
Annotation:The Working Poor Families Project (WPFP) supports efforts of state nonprofit organizations to strengthen state policies that can assist low-income workers to achieve economic security and become productive participants in the economy. WPFP encourages state groups to address the issue of college affordability for working adults. States that want – and need – to increase the educational attainment of their workforce should consider public policies that target working adults who need to improve their education and workforce skills. A few states – including several with Working Poor Families Project partners – are in the forefront of addressing college access for working adults. This policy brief describes these efforts and offers recommendations for states to strengthen financial aid programs that facilitate the enrollment of working adults and their success in college.
