(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill authored by Assemblymember Phil Ting (D-San Francisco), Chair of the Assembly Democratic Caucus, simplifying the Cal Grant application process in order to help thousands of high performing students from low income families receive financial aid for college.
"Today's action restores fairness to our state's largest financial aid program," said Ting."These reforms make it easier for students to apply for aid by streamlining the application process. All qualified students must get the aid and the education they deserve. By making the program operate more efficiently, we can prevent thousands of students from falling through the cracks and take pride in positioning them for greater success in life."
