New York’s Tuition Assistance Program will extend to part-time students taking six credits or more starting this fall. The $150 million expansion of the program will support approximately 75,000 more students. insidehighered.com/quicktake… @insidehighered

Like @RWJF, we “hoped for far broader and more equitable effort to help create an America in which race, ethnicity, income level, neighborhood, disability, occupation and immigration status no longer determine how long and how well people live.” thehill.com/opinion/white-ho…

It’s about damn time 👏🏼👏🏼
Today #YINewYork attended a press conference at @bmcc_cuny where @GovKathyHochul announced expansion of the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP). This will allow part-time @CUNY & @SUNY students, like student speaker Amy, access to financial support previously unavailable to them.

College students experience job loss, cars break down, health issues arise, some need to buy diapers or formula, or face other emergency situations. Our new policy toolkit can help Congress create a permanent #EmergencyAid program for #TodaysStudents: bit.ly/3zCGO3l

Today is the 102nd anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Remember—it only gave white women voting rights. BIPOC women waited decades more: •1920: White Women •1952: Asian Women •1962: Native Women •1965: Black Women •1975: Latino Women We must continue to protect voting rights

Many of the states that are moving to ban abortion tend to have less access to healthcare, worse maternal and infant healthcare outcomes and weaker social supports for children and families, data shows. n.pr/3AFb921

From @govkathyhochul proposal to reality — @bmcc_cuny student Amy Santana (with an assist from her adorable son Noah), spoke about how this expansion helps her: “Now that Governor Hochul has expanded TAP, it works for students like me and I can make my dream my reality.”

"By voting in record numbers & staying in the fight when it was unpopular & hard, young people demonstrated an inspiring combination of grit & hope to deliver the historic #InflationReductionAct." Young people made this historic climate action possible. thehill.com/opinion/energy-e…

SO BASICALLY I HAVEN'T MADE A STUDENT DEBT PAYMENT IN OVER TWO YEARS. I'VE BEEN ABLE TO ACTUALLY SAVE MONEY AND LIVE MY LIFE WITHOUT BURDENSOME LOAN PAYMENTS. BUT IT'S JUST TEMPORARY RELIEF AND @POTUS REALLY NEEDS TO CANCEL STUDENT DEBT LIKE HE PROMISED BUT WITHOUT INCOME CAPS.

New York's Tuition Assistance Program is one of the nation's most robust financial aid programs. Its recent expansion to part-time students is a much needed step for education equity. Part-time students often support families, and juggle work and other responsibilities
