Help TRIO Serve 1 Million students in FY24
This year, we are asking Members of Congress to support President Biden’s Budget Request and increase TRIO funding by $107 million in Fiscal Year 2024.
The House and Senate Appropriations Committees are working this spring to determine funding levels for the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education Appropriations bill. We must continue to advocate, share our student and alumni success stories, and show Congress that TRIO works! Thank you for your advocacy. It is a testament to your hard work on behalf of TRIO students and programs.
Calling all alumni to fight for more funding for TRIO!
Our TRIO programs are dedicated to ensuring low-income students served by the TRIO programs not only become the first in their families to attend college but contribute to our local communities. Please consider visiting a TRIO program in the near future. We would be more than happy to host you or a member of your staff during the next District Work Period.

Invite your Member of Congress to visit your TRIO program! Each month, Members of Congress travel between Washington, DC, and their home States and Districts to connect with local constituents. COE challenges all TRIO community members to host many local visits with your Representatives and Senators between now and the end of the appropriations cycle later this fall. While Members of Congress are traveling, it is an opportune time to demonstrate that TRIO works!
