Now or Never! Ask Congress to Increase TRIO Funding in FY22!

September 2, 2021

Right now, your Senators are writing the annual appropriations bill that will fund TRIO and all education programs. Your Senators MUST hear from you now to support this TRIO increase, or it won’t happen. Thanks to your advocacy efforts, the President and the U.S. House passed a record $200.8 million proposed increase for TRIO! But we are not at the finish line yet. If this proposed increased is passed by the Senate and signed by the President, it could increase the number and size of grants awarded in the upcoming FY22 competitions for Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math/Science, Veterans Upward Bound, and McNair, as well as fund additional high scoring applicants in the FY21 Talent Search and Education Opportunity Centers competitions and provide more funding for existing Student Support Services grants.
