Action Alert: Act Now with CEC to Influence the HEA Reauthorization

The Higher Education Act (HEA) governs federal policy on higher education. Major provisions of HEA include grant and loan programs such as Pell and TEACH Grants; grants to institutions for educator preparation programs; access and affordability of higher education, such as the TRIO and GEAR UP programs, and more. These programs influence the educator pipeline and directly impact schools and classrooms. HEA was last reauthorized in 2008 and is the top education priority for Congress this year.

Because HEA is so crucial to the work you do every day, CEC invites you to join us through advocacy to influence the HEA reauthorization. CEC has created an action alert so that you can lend your voice in support of an HEA reauthorization that strengthens the educator pipeline and strengthens transition to college as well as accessibility and services for students with disabilities enrolled in higher education.
