Open States' stated mission is to improve civic engagement.

To be true to that goal, we can not stand by and be silent when a large portion of Americans face systemic racism and other forms of oppression. That oppression has meant being excluded from civic participation at the ballot box, being called un-American for peaceful protests, and being denied justice for crimes committed against them.

Please consider giving to local causes that support racial justice in your area.

Student financial aid: Cal Grant Program.

Abstract

Existing law, known as the Ortiz-Pacheco-Poochigian-Vasconcellos Cal Grant Program (Cal Grant Program) , establishes the Cal Grant awards under the administration of the Student Aid Commission and establishes eligibility requirements for the awards for participating students attending qualifying postsecondary educational institutions. Existing law requires the maximum award amounts for Cal Grant awards to be identified in the annual Budget Act and prescribes the manner for calculating the maximum Cal Grant A and B awards. In this regard, existing law requires the maximum Cal Grant A award for a student attending the University of California or the California State University to equal the mandatory systemwide fees in each of those segments; the maximum Cal Grant B award for a student attending the University of California or the California State University to equal the mandatory systemwide fees in the segment attended by the student, except as specified; and the maximum Cal Grant A and Cal Grant B awards for students attending nonpublic institutions to equal the levels established in the Budget Act of 2000, or the amount as adjusted in subsequent annual budget acts. Cal Grant B awards also include an award for access costs in an amount not exceeding $1,551. The maximum Cal Grant B award for a student's first year of enrollment is limited to the amount of the access award. Existing law also establishes a Cal Grant C award, which may be used only for occupational or technical training, as defined, in a course of not less than 4 months. This bill would require the maximum amounts of the Cal Grant A and Cal Grant B awards for students attending nonpublic institutions to equal the levels established in the Budget Act of 2009, adjusted annually by a specified inflation factor. The bill would require the maximum amount of the Cal Grant B access award to be adjusted annually by a specified inflation factor. The bill also would require the maximum Cal Grant C award to equal the sum of the tuition and fee award level and the book and supply award level in the Budget Act of 2009, adjusted annually by a specified inflation factor.
