While the Iowa Legislature may be out of session for the time being, work continues at the federal level. A third round of relief funding was allocated to Community Colleges recently. Updated guidance can be found here, as well as information from a Department of Education presentation here. Additionally, discussions continue related to infrastructure and education, including the Biden administration’s “free Community College” proposal, however, at this time, no specific legislation has moved forward. IACCT also continues to work with our Colleges to secure federal Community Project funding for our College and Career Transition Counselors initiative. The request is being considered by the House Appropriations Committee this month.
