Dear Colleague Letter Request to Double the Current Pell Maximum Award in FY23

Representative Cicilline (D-OR) is leading a letter requesting that the House Appropriations Committee provide a robust funding for the Federal Pell Grant Program in Fiscal Year 2023 so that the maximum individual award can be increased to $12,990, which is nearly double the current maximum award. The letter also asks  appropriators to secure the long-term affordability impact of the Pell Grant program for years to come by indexing the maximum award amount to inflation and ensuring that funding for the program is fully mandatory, rather than discretionary.

Double Pell Letter (Deadline: 4/22/22)
