To: The Virginia State House and Governor Ralph Northam

Support the "Virginia College for All" (HB 696) bill

We are signing to show our support for the Virginia College for All legislation, and for other states to make similar commitments to their students. Policymakers in Virginia: Support H.B. 696.

Why is this important?

The Virginia College for All (formerly, the Virginia Guaranteed Assistance Program) would offer no-loan guarantees to low-income students and interest free loans to students of middle-income families. Since state disinvestment in higher education is the number one reason colleges are cutting funds from their financial aid programs, this new legislation is a victory in reversing these trends. Other states should follow suit.
