JCC Gets Grant To Help Low-Income Students


Jefferson Community College is getting $50,000 to help low-income students enter and complete college.

Governor Andrew Cuomo made the announcement Wednesday.

New York's College Access Challenge Grant Program will assist 24,655 students and families statewide.
The federal dollars are distributed to not-for-profits and community based organizations to help underserved and low income students with tutoring assistance, re-enrollment and retention to at risk populations, and mentoring help.

The program also provides funding for free college tours to low-income students and helps students and their families navigate through financial aid requirements.

The amount awarded to each organization is determined by the number of New Yorkers served and the scope of the services provided.
