Title IV-A Funding

 

STATEMENT OF THE TITLE IV-A COALITION ON HOUSE APPROPRIATIONS SUBCOMMITTEE'S APPROVAL OF $500 MILLION FOR STUDENT SUPPORT AND ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT (SSAE) GRANT PROGRAM IN FY18

Washington D.C., July 14, 2017 – “In this difficult fiscal environment, our coalition is appreciative that the House Appropriations LHHS-Ed Subcommittee made Title IV-A grants a priority and increased funding over last year's level. This is a good start, and we look forward to when this program's funding level matches its authorized level of $1.6 billion so that every school/district will be able to access funds to create safe and healthy environments for students, provide a well-rounded education, and provide technology training and resources. We must note, though, that this funding level is still too low to operate it as a formula grant without a competitive option, as the law intended. We are hopeful that Title IV-A will receive a final allocation in FY 2018 that obviates the need for a competitive option.

“We also would be remiss if we did not express our deep concern about the number of other important education programs that this bill would cut deeply or eliminate completely. Our members and America's students derive significant benefits from those programs and we urge Congress to raise overall funding caps so that all education programs receive the funding they need and deserve.”
