CECU Endorses the Bipartisan Workforce Pell Act 

Arlington, VA – The following statement was released by CECU regarding the Bipartisan Workforce Pell Act:
"We congratulate Chairwoman Foxx and Ranking Member Scott on their leadership in bringing forward this bipartisan bill, creating a significant benefit for students. Adding the Workforce Pell Grant to the list of financial aid options available to students will allow them to choose the educational setting and career path that matches their interests and skill set. It will also contribute to solving the labor shortages across many important professions, particularly in the skilled trades that are so important to America’s workforce. By including strict accountability measures that apply to all schools in all sectors, the bill ensures that only the highest quality schools will qualify," said CECU’s President and CEO, Dr. Jason Altmire. "CECU has long supported accountability measures that are fair and provide equal protection to students in every sector of higher education. We support this legislation and look forward to continuing to work with the committee and others in Congress as this bill makes its way through the legislative process."
