Description:
The State has invested a total of $40 million in the Oregon Promise Grant for 2017-19. The $40M investment allows Oregon to extend grants for 2016-17 awardees and add grants for eligible new students who will enter community college in the next two years. This will help to cover the cost of providing the grant to eligible Oregon students, but the funding falls approximately $8 million short of the projected cost to fully fund Oregon Promise in 2017-19.
