Balancing the Budget on the Backs of Pell Students Limits College Affordability - John Sandman, MainStreet

Pell Grants will go under the knife if the House of Representative's version of the Republican budget that was introduced on Tuesday becomes law. The GOP wants to whack federal spending by about $5.5 trillion during the next decade. Cuts would not kick in until October 1, the start of the 2016 fiscal year, but it would influence spending priorities for the rest of the decade and likely beyond. Changes to Pell Grants would make this grant program "permanently sustainable" according to the budget, and "serve students today and in the future."
