Senator Introduces Bill to Reinstate Year-Round Pell, Make Funding Automatic

1 April 2014 5 views No Comment

Senator Mazie Hirono (D-HI) introduced a bill, The Pell Grant Protection Act, that would strengthen the Pell Grant program by making its funding automatic and effectively reinstating year-round Pell. NASFAA worked alongside Senator Hirono’s office to develop this bill and is supportive of making the Pell Grant more flexible by providing the option for students to draw down funds at their own pace. The provisions in this bill closely mirror the Pell Well and Flex Pell concepts NASFAA put forth in the Reimagining Aid Design and Delivery (RADD) project and Reauthorization Task Force (RTF) Recommendations.
