U.S. Labor Secretary Martin J. Walsh told attendees of the 2022 Community College National Legislative Summit Tuesday that the community college sector will play a critical role in the Biden Administration’s efforts to expand career pathways, including new opportunities for women, minorities, and rural communities.
First Lady Jill Biden kicked off the 2022 Community College National Legislative Summit Monday morning by emphatically stating that the Biden Administration will continue its ambitious efforts to support community colleges despite legislative setbacks.
The National Legislative Summit is the premier community college advocacy event in Washington, DC, bringing together more than 1,000 community college leaders. The event shines a spotlight on the importance of our nation’s community colleges for Congress and the Administration.
First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden, spoke live from the Community College National Legislative Summit, on Monday, February 7 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern.
Today, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) announced a new $198 million grant opportunity and new guidance on how colleges can use American Recue Plan Grant funds to meet students’ basic needs such as housing and food security; and guidance on how colleges can use existing data to connect students to other federal benefits, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and the Affordable Connectivity Program at the Federal Communications Commission.

Please join us for the second webinar in ACCT's Strengthening Rural Community Colleges Learning Series to discuss USDA rural development loans to support housing on rural community college campuses.
On behalf of the nation’s community colleges, we are disappointed to hear reports of the exclusion of the America’s College Promise Act from the Build Back Better Act that is before Congress. Community colleges provide relevant and affordable access to higher education and career training opportunities for nearly 12-million Americans each year. This legislation would mark a historical federal investment in ensuring these opportunities remain affordable and accessible.
