The state paid nearly 40 million dollars last year to help 42,000 low income college students go to a community college. For the current school year, it has paid nothing. Michael Monagham, executive director of the Illinois Community College Trustees Association, represents 39 community college boards of trustees. He said the schools want the state to pitch in for grants and other programs.
