Dear TRIO Colleagues
The Biden-Harris Administration has asked Congress to provide a $107 million (or 9%) funding increase for TRIO for a total proposed appropriation of $1.3 billion in FY24.
COE applauds this proposed increase and will fight for this amount as it would allow TRIO programs to move closer to its goal of serving 1 million students and provide much-needed cost-of-living increases for all current programs to serve students more intensively.
Let’s Remind Your Member of Congress that TRIO Works!
