Efforts to streamline and simplify the current Cal Grant system will make California’s financial aid system more accessible to students who need support the most, including low income students, student-parents, and returning learners. Under a new legislative proposal – AB 1456 (Medina, McCarty)—Cal Grant awards would reach nearly 200,000 more students and be restructured to better meet students’ needs while maintaining existing levels of support for middle-class families.
