Whether through Pell Grants, institutional aid, or workforce development programs, the federal government has a significant impact on community colleges. The Association of Community College Trustees strongly believes that civic action is an important part of working for community colleges. To that end, the Advocacy section of this website will serve to help trustees become more informed about what is happening in Washington,  gain knowledge as how to be the best advocate, and take action on behalf of their institutions. Please use the resources here to work with the ACCT Public Policy team to work for good education policy.
