The Higher Education Act (HEA), adopted in 1965, authorizes federal aid programs that support individuals pursuing postsecondary education and higher education institutions. The HEA was last reauthorized in 2008, and Congress is currently working towards the next HEA reauthorization. AYPF is interested in monitoring the progress of the upcoming HEA reauthorization and how it will address cost, affordability, student loan programs, access, and completion, and especially how changes in the HEA will impact low-income, first generation, and minority students.
