New College Affordability Coalition releases new principles for the Higher Education Act

Coalition: College Affordability Coalition

As Congress plans to reauthorize the Higher Education Act (HEA), a new coalition has formed to advocate for needed federal investments and protections in order to promote more equitable outcomes within our higher education system.

Consumer Action joins the College Affordability Coalition, a group of 25 organizations representing the voices of students and families, consumers, institutions, and civil rights groups, today released principles for HEA to strengthen the Pell Grant program, renew a federal-state partnership for college affordability, and create a borrower-centered federal loan system.
