Hill briefing on Pell Grants in Prison

Second Chances for Students: Reducing Recidivism Through College Education
College education in prison settings has shown to substantially reduce the risk of recidivism while increasing cost-savings at the state and federal level.

Join FAMM, Ed Trust, and our panel of experts as we discuss reinstating Pell Grant eligibility to those in our nation’s prisons.
